Motivation and objectives
Motivation and Objectives

  • Motivation the involvement in Grid Testbeds

    • Participation in LHC experiments (HEP):

      • ATLAS

    • Participation in Air Pollution Modelling

  • Objectives:

    • Initial development and exploitation of a Grid infrastructure in Valencia.

    • Physics and Chemistry analysis preparation for Grid computing.

    • Provide support and infrastructure for:

      • Development of Grid applications;

      • Test and validation of Grid applications.


Grid projects
GRID Projects

  • DATAGRID (from European Union)

  • CROSSGRID (from European Union)

  • SPECIAL ACTION (Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology)

  • Three-Years Project (Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology)


Current grid activities
Current Grid Activities

  • Evaluation of the DATAGRID middleware

  • Implementation of the Valencia testbed site:

    • Maintenance of a Globus meta-directory:

      • Institutional MDS of Valencia “dc=ific, dc=es, o=Grid”

    • Integration of Valencia into the DATAGRID testbed:

      • Globus gatekeeper;

      • Globus Condor and PBS job-manager;

      • GSI authentication through the Spanish (in IFCA) CA

      • Etc,...

    • Participation in DATAGRID testbeds 0 and 1


Current grid activities1
Current Grid Activities

  • We are participating in this year in the DATA CHALLENGE 1 (DC1) of ATLAS experiment with two goals:

    • Event productions in our farm in order to provide samples for physics studies and make the Technical Design Report for the end of 2002.

    • To test in our farm the new software, including Geant4, the new event data model and the evaluation of two database technologies, Objectivity and Root-I/O.

  • 400k events have been simulated in DC1 phase 1 (non EDG used, but foreseen for phase 2 )

    • Total CPU time: 21 Khours

    • Total disk space: 1.1 TBytes


Networking in spain
Networking in Spain

  • ISP: RedIris (Spanish Academic Research Network)

    • Geant connectivity at 2.5 Gbits/s.

    • US connectivity at 180 Mbits/s.


Valencia networking
Valencia Networking

  • Gigabit Ethernet Backbone in local area network.

  • Fibre optic link with University BackBone using Gigabit Ethernet

  • Fibre optic link of 155 Mbits/s with IP over ATM from the University to RedIris (Shared among other Universities and research centers of the “Comunitat Valenciana”)
