Executive Summary: A researcher needs read-only access to a repository of files while using a cloud resource administered by the researcher. The repository is hosted by a service provider. Repository contents may include: installed applications, container images, application configuration files, data files.
This use case can be supported with minimal effort by the XSEDE team. The total estimated effort is roughly two person-weeks and consists of referencing existing documentation and possibly preparing additional context/guidance for XSEDE community members.
