Abstract: As data sets from DOE user science facilities grow in both size and complexity, there is an urgent need for new capabilities to transfer, analyze and manage the data underlying scientific discoveries. LBNL's Superfacility project brings together experimental and observational research instruments with computational and network facilities at NERSC and ESnet with the goal of enabling user science. Here, we report on recent innovations in the Superfacility project, including advanced data management, API-based automation, real-time interactive user interfaces and supported infrastructure for “edge” services.
