Abstract [en]

Enabling Grids for E-sciencE represents the worlds' largest multidisciplinary grid infrastructure today. Co-funded by the European Commission, it brings together more than 90 partners in 32 countries to produce a reliable and scalable computing resource available to the European and global research community. At present, it consists of more than 200 sites in over 40 countries and makes more than 35,000 CPUs available to users 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This article provides an overview of EGEE, its infrastructure, middleware, applications and support structures. From this experience, the current state of future plans will be explained, which is summarized under the term European Grid Initiative (EGI), and represents an emerging federated model for sustainable future grid infrastructures.
