Resources and some Swiss grids
Resulting SwiNG activities.
Organisational movements 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.
Numbers taken from web sites. May be wrong !
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.
NATIONAL : A future grid portal
with uniform access to most Swiss HPC resources ?
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)
Did 50k wall time days in 2008. November 2009 it has already doubled.
Swiss infrastructure relies on international
middleware. Need to ensure sustained products.
See potential membership in NorduGrid.
Not yet a SwiNG WG: WLCG (http://www.cern.ch/lcg) Some Swiss clusters are EGEE sites : CSCS T2, PSI CMS T3, LHCb in Zuerich and Lausanne)
Take a look at the monitor.
INTERNATIONAL : Swiss clusters are embedded in
international grids, need for international coordination.
See EGI !
Annual report 2008 (www.swing-grid.ch - 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
The Swiss Grid School 2009 was arranged in conjunction with GPC09.
20 Participants. Several from abroad.
Tutorials on ARC, gLite, Condor (campus grid)
Next year : SGS’10 in Lugano. June 22 – 23.
New SAC chair since the
2009 SAC meeting in June :
25 member groups. One new : UniGE enviroSPACE (N. Ray)
The SwiNG Member institutions have growing computing needs.
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 .
INTERNATIONAL : Swiss clusters are embedded in
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.
Contact: Cesare Pautasso, USI
NEW SAC CHAIR 2009
1.5 Working Groups
Swiss Multi-Science Computing Grid (SMSCG), N. Williams, P. Flury.
The Swiss ATLAS Grid, S. Gadomski
Campus Grid, P. Jermini.
Education and Training, N. Abdennadher.
Grid Workflow, C. Pautasso
Proteomics, A. Quandt
Industrial, N. Abdennadher.
There are many other grid activities in CH which may want to hook up.
