Frontier® CODE

Collaborative Online Development Environment

New in Frontier 6, Parabon's Frontier CODE collaborative online development environment is an integrated suite of technologies that provides Platform as a Service (PaaS) capabilities on top of Frontier. This allows technical and non-technical users to work together to
manage the entire lifecycle of their enterprise computing applications.

Frontier CODE
  • HOW DOES IT WORK?
    By integrating forums, a wiki, a cloud-based text editor, version controlled source code, a trouble ticket system that helps engineers track changes, networked data storage, fully-managed, virtualized build and runtime environments, and more, Frontier CODE allows code-centric communities to collaborate, create, and deploy a wide variety of enterprise computing applications.

  • WHERE DOES IT RUN?
    The Frontier CODE Server — which offers technical users the tools that aid in application design and team collaboration — can reside in your datacenter, as a virtual appliance in your public or private cloud, or as a hosted, online "pay-as-you-go" software service.

    The Frontier Compute Engine software can run on any Windows, Unix, or Mac OS X system — from laptops to Linux clusters. By harnessing the excess computational capacity within an enterprise, users can save time, save money, and do more with Frontier CODE.

    Frontier CODE Launch and Monitor App Execution
  • MANAGE APPLICATION CREATION, MIGRATION, DISTRIBUTION, COMPILATION, DOCUMENTATION, MODIFICATION, AND EXECUTION – ALL IN ONE WEB INTERFACE
    The Frontier Dashboard provides "single pane of glass" access to a wide variety of enterprise computing applications; technical users will particularly enjoy the benefits of software development "in the cloud" — instant access to online source code projects, featuring syntax highlighting, version control, wikis, forums, ticket tracking, as well as automatic app generation and deployment.

  • CREATE CODE-CENTRIC COMMUNITIES
    The Frontier CODE collaborative online development environment provides project management features, including a Drupal-based Content Management System (CMS); source code versioning with SVN and GIT; cloud-based, online editor with syntax highlighting, extensible key-mapping, and hosted file management. Code-Centric Community

    Frontier CODE includes the ACE in-browser editor, allowing Domain Programmers to modify source code directly in their browsers, making it easier for scientists and researchers to develop custom models without having to create the supporting infrastructure as well.

    Frontier CODE Manage Source Repositories

    In addition, Frontier CODE offers hosted SVN and GIT repositories for centralized storage and version control, forums and wikis that aid in design and documentation, cloud-based editing, a trouble ticket system that helps engineers track changes, as well as automatic deployment and execution of Software as a Service (SaaS) applications that can be made available via the Frontier App Store.

    Frontier CODE Collaboration Tools: Wiki, Forums, Ticket Tracker
  • HARNESS THE POWER OF YOUR EXISTING DATACENTER, DESKTOP, AND CLOUD COMPUTING RESOURCES
    Parabon's Frontier Enterprise Computing Platform is a turn-key, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software solution that harnesses the aggregate computing capacity of existing enterprise resources — from laptops to Linux clusters, as well as Windows and Mac OS X desktops and workstations —– to securely deliver a variety of on-demand enterprise computing services.

  • TRANSFORM YOUR ENTERPRISE
    The latest release of Frontier makes it even easier for organizations to transform existing enterprise IT resources into a single, centrally managed virtual datacenter, able to provide dynamically provisioned cloud services, extreme-scale computing capacity, and system-wide resource profiling – all while continuing to support current enterprise operations.

Code-Centric Community

Development of Frontier CODE was partially funded by a Modeling & Simulation as a Service grant under NASA's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.

Frontier CODE eliminates many of the obstacles that currently challenge the modeling & simulation community, and will revolutionize how scientific software is designed, developed, deployed and used.

NASA is working with Parabon to help bring their climate models into the hands of more researchers through the software-as-a-service paradigm.

The fact that this solution is accessible from the browser means anyone anywhere will be able to help contribute to NASA's understanding of Earth system science.
