The aim of the CYGNO project is to demonstrate the capability of a high resolution gaseous TPC based on sCMOS (scientific CMOS) optical readout for present and future directional Dark Matter searches at low WIMP masses (1-10 GeV) down to and beyond the Neutrino Floor.
CYGNO is a typical medium size astro-particle experiment that requires a relatively small amount of computing resources and for this reason can be subjected to a fragmentation and low utilisation rate. A typical use case that could exploit and benefit from all the features of a Cloud infrastructure.
In the context of the INFN-Cloud project, a container based system has been developed in order to provide a seamless integration between storage and compute system. The latter is based on JupyterHub to provide a multi user environment to access the experiment environment (ROOT, GEANT, GARFIELD++, libraries, ecc). The token based authentication and authorization system allows a seamless integration with S3 Cloud Storage where a remote DAQ system continuously uploads acquired files. The result is a Software as a Service layer for data analysis and simulation with common tools of our community.
The talk will detail the overall project and preliminary user experiences.
