NWO/EW DAS-3 NCF

  • The DAS-3 project was co-funded by NWO-EW and NCF

  • By EW in support of Computer Science instrumentation

  • By NCF in support of the development of grid-based infrastructures

  • DAS-3 project management successfully convinced EW and NCF that their project could serve both purposes and add value to both

Points of view from the research organisation l.jpg
Points of view from the Research Organisation

  • Grids are in their infancy ->ICT research and development topic

    • Middleware development -> Public interest

    • Experiments in Computer Science domain

    • Added value through Light Path connections

    • Demonstrator

  • Grids are applicable tools ->Basis for wide area ICT infrastructure

    • All major wide area ICT infrastructures to be based on grid technology

    • “Readily” applicable

    • Higher return in investment for grid resources

International demonstrator l.jpg
International demonstrator

  • Significant international interest in switched light path technology

  • The Netherlands are an excellent experimental garden

    • Not only for the networking technology

    • But now also for grid-technology

    • Task to the DAS-3 project management: consider the potential for valorisation from the very start of the project

Profiling the netherlands l.jpg
Profiling the Netherlands

  • DAS-3 fits the goals for profiling the Netherlands as an serious investor in support of facilitating (e-) Science and

  • As an attractive partner for ICT research.

  • Examples that support this picture are:

    • VL-e, Bricks, LOFAR+ Blue Gene, NBIC/Genomics, BIGGRID, TERAS/ASTER and Huygens, Gigaport/SURFnet, …

Das 3 and deisa l.jpg
DAS-3 and DEISA

  • Whereas DAS-3 is the distributed supercomputer of ASCI,

  • DEISA is the distributed supercomputer of Europe

    • (DEISA=Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputer Applications)

    • www.deisa.org

    • How can the DAS-3 project results benefit to the European SC-infrastructure?

Das 3 and sirene l.jpg
DAS-3 and SIRENE

  • Whereas DAS-3 is a Dutch project

  • SIRENE is a cooperation between EST, Let, Lit, F, SE, N, Dk, Ire, NL, B, (L), At and H, focussed on grid cooperation and sharing grid resources sirene.eugrid.eu

  • How can DAS-3 set an outstanding example to grid-infrastructures (as the goals of SIRENE describe)?

Das 3 and biggrid l.jpg
DAS-3 and BIGGRID

  • Don’t think BIGGRID is the BIG grid and DAS-3 is the small grid

    • BIGGRID will be BIG and eventually encompass DAS-3 as one of the resources, but

    • BIGGRID yet has to determine its technology and middleware basis;

    • BIGGRID is to learn from the experimental mixture of DAS-3 local and computer science use with general purpose grid usage by “third parties”;

    • BIGGRID has yet to learn from light path usage experiments in DAS-3;

    • The DAS-3 project is ahead of BIGGRID in terms of starting date and organisation;

    • BIGGRID will be successful, but yet has to grow BIG

Das 3 and success l.jpg
DAS-3 and SUCCESS

  • DAS-3 is born success prone:

    • It will address lots of ambitious sciences cases;

    • The applicants have well established track records;

    • It will be demonstrated that computer science and computational science are adjacent fields indeed and are well able to cross fertilise each other;

    • The researchers involved are eager as never before to show their funding is well deserved as

    • Their scope lies beyond “3”
