Application testbed for European GRID computing (EUROGRID)

Project ID: IST-1999-20247
Funded under: FP5-IST

Abstract

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 project develops the interconnection of complex heterogeneous High Performance Computing systems in a cross-organizational and cross-domain manner. It has extended its scope even further to the active and wide-scale outreach and cooperation with other related European GRID projects. EUROGRID established trans�European GRIDs for important application areas using UNICORE as a base middleware. The Eurogrid partners are leading European HPC centres, application developers and user organisations from research and industry. Application domains are biology, meteorology and engineering. Functional extensions are being developed in the areas of failsafe file transfer, dynamic resource discovery and brokering, application coupling, ASP services and interactive access.
