Research and technological development for a transatlantic GRID (DataTAG)

Project ID: IST-2001-32459
Funded under: FP5-IST


This document provides a brief update on the achievements of a project funded under the "Research Networking" theme of the FP5 Information Society Technologies (IST) programme. It describes the objectives, experimental work and results of the project.

The main idea behind the DataTAG project was to strengthen the collaboration between, Globus middleware based Grid projects in Europe and in the USA. We provide a common dedicated test-bed, in order to facilitate the deployment of a �transparent� Grid infrastructure. It gives access to the massively distributed computing infrastructure that is needed to meet the challenges of modern high energy physics experiments such as the data intensive LHC (Large Hadron Collider at CERN) applications. Consequently, the DataTAG project has addressed the issues which arise in the sectors of high performance inter-Grid and interoperability between the Grid middleware layers such as information and security services. The advances made have been disseminated into each of the associated Grid projects.
