In this paper the authors will be introducing FutureGrid, which provides a testbed to conduct research for cloud, grid, and high performance computing. Although FutureGrid has only a modest number of compute cores (about 4500 regular cores and 14000 GPU cores) it provides an ideal playground to test out various frameworks that may be useful for users to consider as part of their big data analysis pipelines. They will be focusing here on the use of FutureGrid for big data related testbed research.
