  1. Large-Scale Distributed Computing in the Netherlands a status overview

  2. What is DutchGrid? • collaboration of 12 organisations • established in 2000 • functions as a platform, getting manpower & hardware from partner orgs • major contributors • WTCWVirtual Laboratory Project (ICES/KIS-II) • ASCI (5 combined Dutch CS Faculties) • Foundation NCF (NWO) • NIKHEF

  4. Resources • ASCI DAS-2 (VU, UvA, Leiden, TUDelft, Utrecht) • 200 dual P-III 1GHz CPUs • homogeneous clusters, 5 locations • NIKHEF DataGrid clusters • 75 dual P-III ~ 1GHz • 1Gb/s IPv4 + 1Gb/s IPv6 • NCF Gridnational computer facilities foundation from NWO • 66 node dual AMD-K7 Fabric Research Cluster (NIKHEF) • 32 node duals “production quality” cluster (SARA)* • 10Gb/s optical “lambda” test bed† • … • BioASP– various smaller O(10 node) clusters

  5. Resources (cont.) SARA – National HPC Centre • Processing • SGI 1024 processor MPP • Mass storage • StorageTek NearLine tape robot • currently: 200 TByte • will grow “indefinitely” (with funds from NCF) • User expertise centre In Total Operations/deployment effort ~ 8 FTE available Research effort O (40 FTE) over 12 organisations

  7. DutchGrid Services • Authentication Services (Certification Authority) • EDG CACG “proper” CA • Student and educational CA • EDG “Tutorial” CA • Regular coordination and info meetings • Installation support • Have been distributing EDG 1.2 till now • User support

  8. Initiatives inside NL NCFGrid strengthening Grid Infrastructure in NL • 4 partners (NIKHEF, ASCI, SARA, ASTRON) • 600 kEUR funding • hardware (3 clusters, 10Gb/s networking) and people (1.5 FTE over 3 years) • approved August 2002 • fabric research + production-quality grids • new apps: bio informatics, astronomy First cluster assembled and being tested…

  10. Some Apps • WTCW Virtual Laboratoryvisual analysis environment for (small-scale) experimental science • Chemo-physical surface analysis (PIXE,FT-IR,SIMS) • BioASP – correlating “omics” databases • Virtual Surgery (by-pass surgery, artery defects) • DØ – Monte-Carlo and Analysis • EcoGridcorrelating bio-diversity information • Radio Astronomy and VLBI (JIVE)LOFAR, AVO

  11. Research Areas in NL • Generic AAA and `security’UvA, NIKHEF • Adaptive programming environmentsFree University Amsterdam • Memory-processor co-allocation TU Delft • High-bandwidth networkingSURFnet, UvA, SARA, NIKHEF • Federated Information & Content ManagementUvA • Interactive visualisationCWI, UvA • Cluster, Storage Management & MonitoringNIKHEF, SARA

  12. Summary • DutchGrid Platform started informally in 2000 • De-facto centre for Grid computing in NL • Tasks supported by partners: CA, web, … • Mix of people from all layers of the ISO stacknetworks, AAA, programming envs, semantic DB, apps Plenty of opportunities for collaboration!
