Lessons from Europe's International Grid Initiatives: Grid Technology in Africa
2006 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This paper presents the progress and recent history of Grid computing in Europe, aimed at the development of a sustainable European Grid infrastructure. This is achieved by examining the Enabling Grids for E-sciencE (EGEE) project, funded by the European Commission (EC) to build a multi-science Grid infrastructure for the European Research Area, and recently connected to the African continent through other EC funded projects. By considering these developments, this paper extracts lessons for development of Grid computing in Africa. Among these are the need to connect to the broader international Grid community to ensure the success of Grid computing, and the proposal of a new incremental model for Grid development that involves leveraging existing Grid infrastructures to support small Grid projects in less developed areas. These lessons are then applied to the African continent, with suggestions of the most effective avenues for development of an African Grid infrastructure.
