The EU datagrid project: Building and Operating a large scale Grid Infrastructure
2006 (English)In: Engineering the Grid: Status and Perspective, American Scientific Publishers, 2006Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The EU DataGrid project (EDG) has its aim to develop a large-scale research testbed for Grid computing. During the lifetime of the Project (January 2001 - March 2004) high level Grid middleware has been developed and a large scale testbed has been up and running continuously since the beginning of 2002. Three application domains are using this testbed to explore the potential Grid computing has for their production environments: Particle Physics, Earth Observation and Biomedics. The EDG testbed, spanning some 20 major sites all over Europe as well as sites in the US and Asia is one of the largest Grid infrastructures in the world. The software developed by EDG is being exploited in many national and international Grid projects, most notably the LCG production infrastructure. In this talk we give a brief overview on Grid computing, present the architecture of the EDG middleware, report on our experiences in deploying and operating a large scale Grid infrastructure and discuss how our application groups are using this infrastructure. An outlook on the future perspectives of Grid computing is concluding the talk.
