Abstract An infrastructure for remote access supporting research workflow is essential for neutron scattering user facilities such as J-PARC MLF. Because the experimental period spans day and night, service monitoring the measurement status from outside the facility is required. Additionally, convenient way to bring a large amount of data back to user’s home institution and to analyze it after experiments is required. To meet these requirements, we are developing a remote access infrastructure as a front-end for facility users based on public clouds. Recently, public clouds have been rapidly developed, so that development and operation schemes of computer systems have changed considerably. Various architectures provided by public clouds enable advanced systems to develop quickly and effectively. Our cloud-based infrastructure comprises services for experimental monitoring, data download and data analysis, using architectures, such as object storage, event-driven server-less computing, and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Facility users can access this infrastructure using a web browser and a VDI client. This contribution reports the current status of the remote access infrastructure.
