Domain application Grid

  • Introducing Cloud Computing concept into CNGrid

    • CNGrid—as IaaS and partially PaaS

    • Domain application Grids—as SaaS and partially PaaS

  • Taking advantages of aggregating distributed heterogeneous resources by Gird and of applying the business model of cloud computing

  • Prototype domain application Grids

    • Simulation and optimization

      • automobile industry

      • aircraft design

      • steel industry

    • Scientific computing

      • Bio-information application

      • computational chemistry

Domain application Grid (cont’d)

  • Using CNGrid as virtual resources which can be dynamically requested and allocated

  • End users obtain resources and services via domain application grids

  • Business model defined between CNGrid and domain application grids

    • Accounting

    • Billing policies

  • Promote usage of CNGrid

  • Exploring sustainable development of CNGrid

Domain applications (Grid)

  • Drug Discovery

  • Weather forecasting

  • Scientific data Grid and its application in research

  • Water resource Information system

  • Grid-enabled railway freight Information system

  • Grid for Chinese medicine database applications

  • HPC and Grid for Aerospace Industry (AviGrid)

  • National forestry project planning, monitoring and evaluation

Status of e-Infrastructure

  • Still far behind in many aspects

    • Especially weak in applications

    • Need multi-disciplinary research

    • Shortage in cross-disciplinary talents

  • Sustainable development is crucial

    • Lack of regular budget for e-Infrastructure

    • Always competing funding with other disciplines

The 12th 5-year plan

  • China’s high-tech program has identified priority topics in both HPC and cloud computing

  • A key project on cloud computing has been launched

    • “Key technologies and systems of cloud computing (1st phase)

      • Network operating systems

      • Network search engines

      • Network based language translation

    • Cloud system management

    • Prototype cloud systems

The 12th 5-year plan (cont’d)

  • A new key project on “high productivity computer and application service environment” launched (2011-2015)

  • Emphasis on balanced development on high productivity computers, application environment, and HPC applications

Cooperation with EU and US

  • EU FP6/FP7

    • EUChinaGRID

    • EchoGRID

    • Bridge

    • Chain

    • EPIKH

    • Chain-Read

  • US

    • Cooperation with the Condor team

    • China-US cooperation on software (to be initiated)

      • Extreme scale software

      • Emerging software architechtures

      • Trustworthy software

Interests on international testbed

  • Experiments and evaluation on new technologies

  • Coordinating research efforts and exchangingR&D experiences

  • Joint development on some topics with common interests

Issues to be addressed

  • Interoperability of existing software and development of new software for testbed

  • Cost/Funding

  • Network bandwidth
