1 GLIF Global Lambda Integrated Facility Kees Neggers CCIRN Cairns Australia, 3 July 2004

2 GLIF, Global Lambda Integrated Facility GLIF, the Global Lambda Integrated Facility, is a collaborative initiative among worldwide NRENs, consortia and institutions with lambdas GLIF was established by invited participants at the 3rd annual Global LambdaGrid Workshop, held August 27, 2003 in Reykjavik, Iceland

3 GLIF Founding Members

4 What is GLIF GLIF is a world-scale Lambda-based Laboratory for application and middleware development on emerging LambdaGrids, where applications rely on dynamically configured networks based on optical wavelengths GLIF is an environment (networking infrastructure, network engineering, system integration, middleware, applications) to accomplish real work

5 GLIF vision GLIF community shares a common vision of building a new grid-computing paradigm, in which the central architectural element is optical networks, not computers, to support this decades most demanding e-science applications. It is no longer sufficient to connect researchers to the internet, they have to be connected to each other.
