EGEE demonstrates the building blocks needed for grid interoperability

15.11.2007
Enabling Grids for E-sciencE (EGEE), the world’s largest scientific computing grid, this week showcased interoperable Grid solutions at SuperComputing ’07 in Reno, Nevada.

The EGEE grid infrastructure, one of the largest in the world, serves over 100,000 jobs a day, enabling extremely large computational challenges to be performed, helping to solve problems from finding drug-like molecules to use in the war against malaria and other diseases to predicting earthquakes and finding fundamental particles.

EGEE is one of a number of large grid projects around the world, all using a variety of technologies. To enable a truly pervasive grid infrastructures operated by these varied projects different technologies need to be able to talk to each other seamlessly, and it is this level of interoperability that EGEE is working towards, in conjunction with the Open Grid Forum (OGF). OGF aims to have scientific and commercial organizations build operational grids using OGF-defined, standards-based components by 2010.

“Science is becoming truly international with scientific collaborations having the need to share data and compute resources across different providers.” says Erwin Laure, EGEE Technical Director. “Interoperable Grid technologies are a key enabler for this kind of modern science.”

Grids are enabled by middleware, the software that sits between the grid user and the massive resource of computer power and data available. Different technologies for information services, data management, and job management need to interoperate to provide a pervasive infrastructure. For instance, thanks to the interoperability between gLite, EGEE’s middleware distribution, and UNICORE, a technology that provides access to supercomputer resources, cluster and supercomputer resources could be exploited seamlessly.

A demonstration of various building blocks needed to implement pervasive Grid infrastructures will be on show at SuperComputing ’07, at the Reno Sparks Convention Centre, in Reno, Nevada, this week, at the EGEE booth, number 2523.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
