Resources and some Swiss grids

Resulting SwiNG activities.

Organisational movements 2009


Some clusters in swing member institutions mi 2009

This is basic infrastructure for Swiss science which will only grow.

Some of these clusters are interconnected with grid middleware.

Some of these clusters are connected to international grids.

Some of these clusters may want to interconnect to a (national) grid in the future.

The MI handle the resulting

needs with SwiNG.

Some Clusters in SwiNG Member Institutions (MI) 2009

Numbers taken from web sites. May be wrong !

Swing wg the swiss multi science computing grid cms smscg ch giis smscg ch

AAA/SWITCH project with 9 participating institutions. Especially the LHC ATLAS experiment and and EPFL project RSA768 have been using remote resources via this grid infrastructure.

SwiNG WG : The Swiss Multi-Science Computing Grid,

NATIONAL : A future grid portal

with uniform access to most Swiss HPC resources ?

Also desktop clusters can be integrated into a national grid infrastructure swing wg campus grid
Also desktop clusters can be integrated into a national grid infrastructure : SwiNG WG : Campus Grid

The Campus Grid WG serves as an open discussion, coordination, exchange, and standardization forum for ongoing and future projects to build campus-wide grids in Switzerland.

Contact: Pascal Jermini (NEW IN 2009)

Swing wg the swiss atlas grid www nordugrid org monitor org

Did 50k wall time days in 2008. November 2009 it has already doubled.

SwiNG WG : The Swiss ATLAS Grid –

Swiss infrastructure relies on international

middleware. Need to ensure sustained products.

See potential membership in NorduGrid.

Not yet a SwiNG WG: WLCG ( doubled. Some Swiss clusters are EGEE sites : CSCS T2, PSI CMS T3, LHCb in Zuerich and Lausanne)

Take a look at the monitor.

The Swiss Multi-Science Computing Grid,

INTERNATIONAL : Swiss clusters are embedded in

international grids, need for international coordination.

See EGI !

Some central swing activities in 2009

Annual report 2008 ( - Documents – Publications - Reports). A couple of press releases.

Boots at EGEE09, SPS09, GPC09, SPEEDUP09

Talks at GPC09 and AGS09

Delegated the CH-NGI role towards EGI, i.e. the InSPIRE project, until 2010 to SWITCH-UZH-ETHZ

In the process to become a NorduGrid member

Assembly and SAC meetings

Last but not least: The SGS09

Some central SwiNG activities in 2009

Swing wg education and training

The Swiss Grid School 2009 was arranged in conjunction with GPC09.

20 Participants. Several from abroad.

Tutorials on ARC, gLite, Condor (campus grid)

SwiNG WG : Education and Training

Next year : SGS’10 in Lugano. June 22 – 23.

1 2 organigram movements in 2009

New SAC chair since the

2009 SAC meeting in June :

S. Gadomski


25 member groups. One new : UniGE enviroSPACE (N. Ray)


The SwiNG Member institutions have growing computing needs. GPC09.

Reflected in a O(10^5) core infrastructure.

Many of these resources are interconnected to a interinstitutional and international grids.

As a result new needs for communication, collaboration, operation and funding rise. SwiNG is here to serve these needs.

New of the year is the delegation of the NGI-CH to the JRU SWITCH-UZH-ETHZ(CHIPP). Also the SwiNG membership in NorduGrid process.

SwiNG will need sustained manpower. A model must be in operation in 2012. This process is being started.

Looks like football, but it means some grid work up front . GPC09.

INTERNATIONAL : Swiss clusters are embedded in

international grids.

Swing wg grid workflow
SwiNG WG : Grid Workflow GPC09.

The Grid Workflow WG serves as forum for collaboration in the area of grid workflow management research to exploit synergies between existing research groups in the area, and establishes, sustains, and grows the Swiss user community of grid workflows technologies.

Products : JOpera submissions to the SMSCG infrastructure.
