12 Our Membership – at 5 th anniversary
13 Prior experience in HPC/Grid Middleware and Applications Parallel computing and cluster technology In the early stage, we are focused on a cheap solution for high performance computing using PC-based cluster. Parallel computing and cluster environments: PVM, MPI, OpenMP, CONDOR, and PBS Several researches on scheduling, fault tolerance and single system image. Typical research topics are: data-intensive computing, failure-aware workflow scheduling. Some open-source cluster middlewares: BKlusware, BKFaultTolerance, BKOSSIC (Bach Khoa Open Single System Image Cluster) for cluster community in Vietnam
14 Prior experience in HPC/Grid Middleware and Applications (2) Grid Computing Grid environments: Globus Toolkit and G-Lite. Typical research topics are: grid scheduler, agent-based approaches for grid computing, semantic grid resource specification. An open-source Grid middleware, called BKGrid, will be used in the National VN-Grid research project ( ).
15 Applications 2/6/ In collaboration with Institute of Meteorology and Hydraulics; Department of Meteorology and Oceanography, Hanoi National University, Vietnam Building a Data Grid, Grid Portal for sharing climate data among Weather Forecast centers in Vietnam In collaboration with Hanoi Pharmaceutical University, Vietnam Applying Grid Computing for discovering new medicine based on DOCKing in collaboration with Institute of Engineering Physics, HUT, Vietnam Molecular Dynamic Simulation in Engineering Physics
16 Domestic collaborations VN-Grid National Research Project partners: Institute of Information Technology (IOIT) Hanoi, IOIT HCM City, Hanoi National University, LeQuyDon Engineering University. Grid Special Interest Group in VINAREN organization (Vietnam Research Education Network) HCM City University of Technology HUT Institutions: School of Information Technology, Library and Information Network Center.
17 International collaborations National Center of High Performance Computing, Taipei, Taiwan (since 2006) Center for Development of Advanced Computing, India (Since There will be a SuperComputer at HPC-HUT as grant of India to Vietnam soon) Doson Grid School TEIN-2 Project (HUT is NOC-VN and NOC- HN) Asia Pacific Advanced Networking (APAN)
18 Brief statement of Rationale Contribution of computing resource (initial configuration) Head node: 2 x 1Ghz, 512Mb RAM Computing nodes: 3 x (3.0Ghz, 1Gb RAM) Storage capacity: 150Gb Bandwidth 6Mb via commercial internet 135Mb via TEIN-2
19 Brief statement of Rationale Involvement in Grid Middleware development Fault tolerance module Single System Image for Grid Economic-based scheduler Semantic grid resource discovery. Involvement in Grid Application development Geo-Grid for Disaster Management. Bio-Grid for Docking.
20 Brief statement of Rationale Involvement in PRAGMA activities Attending the PRAGMA workshops regularly Hosting a PRAGMA workshop in the future Bridging PRAGMA collaboration to other GC/HPC institutions in Vietnam.
21 Indication of Intentions We strongly believe that joining PRAGMA would give us a precious opportunity for: Receiving the state-of-the-art grid technology A much better computational environment for experimenting and conducting grid applications What can we contribute to promoting life science HPC and GC communities Participation to development of grid applications in life science for Vietnam and the region Sharing knowledge and experiments on deploying grid technologies in related areas Computing resource: Supercomputer from C-DAC (128 Processors, 2TFlops, 256 GB RAM, 36TB HDD).
