Executive Summary: A researcher shares a remote desktop session with someone else so the other person can assist with an issue in the session or observe what the researcher is doing. The other viewer can only see the desktop session, not interact with it.
The work currently proposed is an engineering analysis to investigate--and possible prototype--the various approaches to providing Open OnDemand interfaces to XSEDE resources. The effort for this analysis is estimated to be 1 person-month of effort. The result of this work will be a proposal for a specific approach. XCI will coordinate with the XSEDE senior management team (SMT) to plan the next steps.
