For the last two years, the Chameleon testbed has enabled researchers around the world to push the limits of cloud computing in areas such as astronomy, cybersecurity, and education. The project, led by the Computation Institute, has thus far served over 14000 users as an experimental, highly customizable environment where they can test new architectures and applications, at the kinds of scale needed for today's big data projects. To commemorate established achievements and plan for the future of the testbed, Chameleon will host its first user meeting this September at Argonne National Laboratory.
