Abstract: Creation of global e-Infrastructure involves an integration of isolated local resources into common heterogeneous computing environment. In 2014 a pioneering work to develop a large scale data- and task- management system for federated heterogeneous resources has been started at the National Research Centre “Kurchatov Institute” (NRC KI, Moscow). As a part of this work, we have designed, developed and deployed a portal to submit payloads to heterogeneous computing infrastructure. It combines Tier-1, Cloud-infrastructure, and a supercomputer at the Kurchatov institute. This portal is aimed to provide a common interface to submit tasks to Grid sites, commercial and academic clouds and supercomputers. Integration of Tier-1 and the supercomputer has allowed to notably increase total CPU capacity available for Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments. The portal can be used not only for High Energy Physics (HEP) applications, but also for other compute-intensive sciences such as bioinformatics with genome and sequence analysis; astrophysics with cosmic rays analysis, antimatter and dark matter search, etc. This article describes developed portal as a top layer for computing facilities infrastructure for High Energy Physics and other compute-intensive science applications. The article presents the results of using PanDA at NRC KI supercomputer/Cloud as underlying technology for the portal.
