Modern cyberinfrastructures typically involve tightly integrated compute, storage
and web application resources. They also form the basis of science gateways, which
add their own science- specific processing or visualization capabilities. While
some science gateways are intended as the central resource provider for a certain
scientific community, others provide generic capabilities that are intended for
further customization at each installation site. However, replicating their setup
is a non-trivial task often involving specific operating system, software package
and configuration choices while also requiring allocation of the actual physical
computing resources. Cloud computing provides an attractive alternative, simplifying
resource provision and enabling reliable replication. We describe our ongoing
efforts to cloud-enable a science gateway that supports geospatial data management,
visualization, processing and publication. In particular, we describe our use of
Amazon Web Services (AWS), the automation of software installation and configuration
as well as some challenges encountered.
