10 Northern Europe Effort in EGEE-III

11 Whats special about the Grid Grids have proven to be an excellent way of federating resources across computer centres of varying sizes into much larger quasi-homogeneous infrastructures. This matches well with the needs of many disciplines, allowing resources at participating institutes to meet the needs of the entire collaboration(s). This in turn adds value to the individual sites, leading to a positive feedback situation. 11

12 But theres (much) more… Grid Computing (potentially) offers value to a wide range of applications, broadly classified as follows: –Provisioned Large scale, long term Grand Challenge e.g. LHC (space microscopes), space telescopes, …. 12

13 But theres (much) more… Grid Computing (potentially) offers value to a wide range of applications, broadly classified as follows: –Provisioned –Scheduled Require large resources for short periods Far too expensive to provision for a single application Not (always) time critical – disaster response? 13

14 But theres (much) more… Grid Computing (potentially) offers value to a wide range of applications, broadly classified as follows: –Provisioned –Scheduled –Opportunistic Which includes the above but also other areas which are less real time 14

15 But theres (much) more… Grid Computing (potentially) offers value to a wide range of applications, broadly classified as follows: –Provisioned –Scheduled –Opportunistic These can co-exist, sharing the same Grid infrastructure(s), to each others mutual benefit! 15

16 Evolution Testbeds Utility Service Routine Usage National Global

17 Why Sustainability TODAY? Dependency: some application domains depend on grids already today Protection of Investment: Investment in grids, both from funding organizations and from users, need to be protected Perspective: Todays grid users are grid enthusiasts, tomorrows grid users ask for a longer term perspective

18 Evolution Testbeds Utility Service Routine Usage National Global European e-Infrastructure

19 Terminology European Grid Initiative (EGI) = the future EGI Organisation + the NGIs EGI Organisation = the future team with central responsibility, including the management structure EGI Design Study = the present EU FP7 project producing a blueprint for a future EGI

20 EGI Objectives Ensure the long-term sustainability of the European e- infrastructure Coordinate the integration and interaction between National Grid Infrastructures Operate the European level of the production Grid infrastructure for a wide range of scientific disciplines to link National Grid Infrastructures

30 Characteristics of NGIs Each NGI … should be a recognized national body with a single point-of-contact … should mobilise national funding and resources … should operate the national e-Infrastructure … should supports user communities (application independent, and open to new user communities and resource providers) … should contribute and adhere to international standards and policies Responsibilities between NGIs and EGI are split to be federated and complementary

31 NGI Responsibilities Regional operations functions Resource provisioning Accounting and monitoring Application support Help desk facilities Contribution to middleware development

32 EGI Operations Principles 1.Reliability of Grid services and SLAs; 2.Multi-level operation model; 3.EGI, NGI and ROC; 4.Multiple middleware stacks; 5.Planning, coordination and gathering of new requirements; 6.Cooperation; 7.Federation, interoperability and data aggregation.

33 EGI Transition Scenario Many applications rely now on production quality grid infrastructures. Sciences using todays grid operations (supported by EGEE, DEISA, …) and other projects should be able to transit without disruption to the envisaged sustainable EGI/NGI-based model. Example: EGEE-III using JRUs as NGI equivalents

34 EGI Transition Scenario Important: Human Expertise Many developments and operational tasks are performed by highly skilled staff, which has built up their expertise through the lifetime of the current grid projects. Care must be taken that this expertise can be retained during and after the transition period.

35 Convention (Statutes) of the EGI Organisation Goal: Defining a set of agreed formal criteria and rules for the EGI organisation to be ratified by the EGI Advisory Board Contents: –Purpose of the EGI Organisation –Membership –Organisational structure (Council, Directors, …) –Budget contributions, audits, …

36 EGI – European Grid Initiative Future EGI Organisation = Glue between various grid communities in Europe and beyond EGI_DS defines required mechanisms and functionalities of the EGI Organisation Towards a sustainable environment for the application communities utilizing grid infrastructures for their everyday work
