Overview

The high level goal of SLATE is to facilitate creation of multi-institutional science computing systems by augmenting the canonical Science DMZ pattern with a generic, programmable, secure and trusted underlayment platform.

The platform permits hosting of containerized services needed for higher-level capabilities such as data transfer nodes, software and data caches, workflow services and science gateway components.

SLATE is using Kubernetes as an underlying technology to implement these capabilities.
