CROSSGRID WP41 Valencia Testbed Site: IFIC (Instituto de Física Corpuscular) CSIC-Valencia ICMoL (Instituto de Ciencia Molecular) UV-Valencia Javier Sánchez - Javier.Sanchez@ific.uv.es José Salt - Jose.Salt@ific.uv.es Santiago González - Santiago.Gonzalez@ific.uv.es Raul Crespo - Raul.Crespo@uv.es
CROSSGRID WP42 Motivation and Objectives Motivation the involvement in Grid Testbeds –Participation in LHC experiments (HEP): ATLAS –Participation in Air Pollution Modelling Objectives: –Initial development and exploitation of a Grid infrastructure in Valencia. –Physics and Chemistry analysis preparation for Grid computing. –Provide support and infrastructure for: Development of Grid applications; Test and validation of Grid applications.
CROSSGRID WP43 GRID Projects DATAGRID (from European Union) CROSSGRID (from European Union) SPECIAL ACTION (Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology) –project approved Three-Years Project (Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology) –In the refereeing process
CROSSGRID WP44 Current Grid Activities Evaluation of the DATAGRID middleware Implementation of the Valencia testbed site: –Maintenance of a Globus meta-directory: Institutional MDS of Valencia dc=ific, dc=es, o=Grid –Integration of Valencia into the DATAGRID testbed: Globus gatekeeper; Globus Condor and PBS job-manager; GSI authentication through the Spanish (in IFCA) CA Etc,... –Participation in DATAGRID testbeds 0 and 1
CROSSGRID WP45 Current Grid Activities We are participating in this year in the DATA CHALLENGE 1(DC1) of ATLAS experiment with two goals: – Event productions in our farm in order to provide samples for physics studies and make the Technical Design Report for the end of 2002. – To test in our farm the new software, including Geant4, the new event data model and the evaluation of two database technologies, Objectivity and Root-I/O.
CROSSGRID WP46 Networking in Spain ISP: RedIris (Spanish Academic Research Network) –Geant connectivity at 2.5 Gbits/s. –US connectivity at 180 Mbits/s.
CROSSGRID WP47 Valencia Networking Gibabit Ethernet BackBone in local area network. Fiber optic link with University BackBone using Gigabit Ethernet Fiber optic link of 155 Mbits/s with IP over ATM from the University to RedIris (Shared among other Universities and research centers of the Comunidad Valenciana)
CROSSGRID WP48 Computing Infrastructure Acquired an infrastructure for Grid activities from CSIC-Universitat de València: –Grupo de Ordenadores para el GRID (GoG) –192 CPUs Chassis: 2U (Rack Mountable) CPU: AMD K7 Athlon @1.2GHz Memory: 1 Gbytes, PC133 HD: 40 Gbytes, ATA 100 @7200 rpm NIC: 100 Mbps full duplex.PXE 2.1, WOL
