    The Latin American Grid Initiative (LGI)(

    (RC: Resource Centre, NGI: National Grid Initiative, GOC: Grid Operation Centre, NREN: National Research & Education Network, NOC: Network Operation Centre, LGI: Latin American Grid Initiative, CLARA: Cooperación Latino Americana de Redes Avanzadas, GSC: Grid Support Centre, NSC: Network Support Centre)

    The latin american grid infrastructure gridlgi
    The Latin American Grid Infrastructure - GridLGI

    GridLGI is composed, from bottom to top of three layers, each of them including Grid and Network components:

    At the lower Institute level:

    The Resource Centre (RC) is the actual site of the Grid computing resources;

    The backbone LAN or MAN network connects the Computing and Storage Elements (CE & SE) at the RC site;

    At the intermediate national level:

    The National Grid Initiative (NGI) integrates all Grid Institutions in the country and federates under its Grid Operation Centre (GOC) all their RCs in a National Grid (GridNGI);

    The underlying National Research & Education Network (NREN) links country-wide the Research and Education Institutes and optimizes / monitors their network activity via its associated Network Operation Centre (NOC);

    At the upper international layer:

    The Latin American Grid Initiative (LGI) which brings together all NGIs and supervises the various GridNGIs operation from its Grid Support Centre (GSC);

    CLARA: it is the WAN network which integrates the Latin American NRENs and supervises the overall RedCLARA network activity by means of its Network Support Centre (NSC).
