Traditional techniques in building science portals and gateways are being challenged by new techniques such as Web 2.0 and Cloud Computing. This paper discusses some of our efforts to evaluate these techniques as we evolve the QuakeSim architecture. We believe that architecturally both traditional and newer approaches for Gateways are very similar; thus, giving us a path for moving to hybrid approaches. In this paper, we specifically evaluate techniques for building interactive user interfaces that rely on remote services; architectural approaches for managing massive job submissions that can include both parallel and serial jobs; and an architectural prototype for building component-based containers compatible with emerging standards.
