9 Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow PPARC Call (27/2/03) GridPP2 Response (30/5/03) Projects Peer Review Panel (14-15/7/03) Grid Steering Committee (28-29/7/03) Science Committee (October 03) Components: GridPP2 Proposal (£23.1m) VerticalIntegrationVerticalIntegration

10 Tony Doyle - University of GlasgowConclusion We request £23.1m to fund our three-year project, GridPP2 This will provide a Production Grid incorporating 1.access to the Tier-0 Centre at CERN and the LCG deployment releases 2.the UK Tier-1 Centre 3.integration of four distributed Tier-2 centres 4.technical development in Middleware, Security and Networking 5.Grid integration of the experiments The project is in direct support of PPARC's highest priority science programme, the LHC Starting Point for Consideration of Priorites

11 Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow GridPP Responses to Questions 1.If funded at a 25 % reduced level, what would the GridPP2 priorities be and what would be delivered? Prior to planning documents and proposal writing, discussed priorities to achieve a Production Grid: robust, reliable, resilient, secure, stable service delivered to end-user applications – adapt to reduced funding with this objective in mind. GridPP2 Reduced Programme 2.What extra added value would be bought/delivered by increasing funding above this level? Present in terms of a 15% reduced level scenario and the corresponding GridPP2 Regained Programme (Other scenarios possible)

12 Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow Priorities: GridPP2 Proposal 1.Tier-1/A staff – National Grid Centre 2.Tier-1/A hardware – International Role 3.Tier-2 staff – UK e-Science Grid 4.Applications –Grid Integration (GridPP2) –Development (experiments proposals) 5.Middleware – EU-wide development 6.Tier-2 hardware – non-PPARC funding 7.CERN staff – quality assurance 8.CERN hardware – pro-rata contribution Established entering proposal writing phase… ALL of these are required to address the LHC Computing Challenge

13 Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow GridPP2 Priorities: £17.3m Funding Scenario Tier-1/A Staff and Hardware – 25% Reduction Tier-2 Staff –30% Reduction Applications –25% Reduction Middleware, Security and Networking –40% Reduction Tier-0/LCG Contribution –Fixed Cost … GridPP Management –Fixed Cost Highest Priority –(Inter)National Grid via LCG Best Value For Money –National Grid End-user Driven Project –Grid interfaces required Essential Grid & e-Science Component –Grid development required Basis of Deployment –International negotiation required with PPARC Added functionality –Operations Manager and Dissemination Officer GridPP2 Priorities End-user Driven Programme Focus on Production Grid Deployment Assessment by Area Risk Reduced ability to develop and maintain Production Grid

14 Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow £17.3m Funding Scenario

15 Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow Tier 0 and LCG: Foundation Programme Aim: retain UK influence Ensure development programmes are linked Project management: GridPPLCG Shared expertise: LCG establishes the global computing infrastructure Allows all participating physicists to exploit LHC data Proposed funding determined based on: –Recently increased funding at CERN supporting LCG (recognition of Grid importance within the LHC programme) –Appropriate share for the UK –Requirements of LCG Phase 2 –Past GridPP1 contribution Required Foundation: LCG Fabric, Technology and Deployment

16 Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow Tier 1: Reduced System GridPP2 Proposal Reduced Services CPU 2.0 Disk 1.5 AFS Tape 2.5 Core Services Operations Networking 0.5 Security Deployment Experiments Management Total 1914 Reduce hardware by 25% 3MSI2K cpu and 850TB of disk by 2007 c.f. Reqt. of 12MSI2K and 2200TB in 2007 Reduce Tier 1 manpower resources by 25%: Reduced International Significance and Ability to Contribute to Grid Deployment

17 Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow Tier 1: Reduced Services Reduced Services (Concentrate on delivery to LHC/LCG) Reduce Application Support by 1 FTE –No explicit support for BaBar at Tier-A and best-effort support for non-LHC experiments Reduce Management by 0.5 FTE –Compromises ability to contribute fully to external projects Reduce Deployment Team by 1 FTE –Reduced participation/support for Grid Deployment programme at UK centre Remove Security Support (1 FTE) and –Spread load across Support Team. Risk of security exposure and less focus on propagating security knowledge to other sites Drop AFS Support (0.5 FTE) –No specialist file service support Reduce Operations Support and Core Services by 1 FTE –Slower fixing of broken boxes. Reduced hardware utilisation Reduce Hardware by 25% –Concentrate on Data Services. Greater reliance on Tier-2 Centres for CPU- intensive jobs Reduced International Significance and Ability to Contribute to Grid Deployment

18 Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow Tier 2: Reduced System Support Reduce Hardware Support by 1 FTE –Reduces hardware support at a given Tier-2 centre by 50% Reduce User Support by 1 FTE (50%) –Harder to induct users in Grid technology and support them afterwards Reduce Data Management by 1 FTE (50%) –No longer a dedicated specialist service (1/2 post) at each Tier-2 centre Remove Network (1 FTE) and VO Management Services (1 FTE) –Services required by all e-Science Grid users –Rely on the local centres providing these: increasing risks if not responsive to GridPP requirements GridPP2 ProposalReduced Service Y 1Y 2Y 3Y 1Y 2Y 3 Hardware Support Core Services4.0 User Support Specialist Services Security1.0 Resource Broker1.0 Network Data Management VO Management Existing Staff-4.0 GridPP Total SY Reduce ability to access significant Tier-2 resources via Production Grid by ~ one third Reduce Tier 2 manpower resources by 30%:

19 Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow Middleware, Security & Networking: Reduced Development –Reduce Security by 1 FTE Omit local access and usage control framework –Reduce Information Services by 2 FTE Matching funding needed for EGEE participation; Risks UK leadership; Other potential solution (MDS) falls short of LCG requirements –Reduce Data & Storage by 1 FTE Reduced data replication capabilities –No Workload Mgmt. Development No tech transfer from Core Programme; No leverage of OGSA development –Reduce Networking by 1 FTE No active participation in UKLight Programme –Rely upon non-GridPP developments Significantly Increased Project Risk Experiments priorities: 1.Data & Storage –Mission critical to PP Information Services & Monitoring –Essential for understanding grid 2.Security –Robust against hackers, denial-of- service, secure file storage.. Networking –PP input to performance & provisioning 3.Workload –Brokering development highly desirable ActivityProposalReduced Security Info. Services & Monit Data & Storage Workload2.50 Networking TOTAL Reduce ability to develop/understand Middleware as part of Production Grid Environment Reduce middleware manpower by 40%: Security Middleware Networking

20 Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow Middleware, Security & Networking: Reduced Development Security Middleware Networking Cuts From Reduced Development Programme

21 Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow Reduce Applications Resources by 25% 5 FTEs removed (less than current programme) –Cuts in ongoing programme of work –Loss of leadership within experiments programme –Reduced non-LHC involvement –No new experiment involvement Long-term problem running separate computing systems Non-Grid & Grid Disenfranchise sizeable part of the community –MICE –Linear Collider –Non-accelerator Physics –Phenomenology Applications: Reduced Development Risk of lost leadership and expertise Failure to engage the whole PP community Expt A Server Expt B Servers Expt CExpt D Middleware

22 Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow Regained Programme Regained Programme: Reduce GridPP2 programme by 15% leading to the following areas being brought back into scope of the GridPP2 programme Note cuts already included (in both scenarios) Dissemination de-scoping: two year funding within GridPP2 Spine Point Savings: SP11 used as average for new University appointments Losses [£m]Reduced Services (25% cut) Regained Programme (15% cut) Tier-1 staff Tier-1 hardware Tier-2 staff Middleware posts Application posts Dissemination De-scoping Spine Point Savings Total Proposed cuts would compromise large areas of the GridPP2 Prioritised Programme GridPP2 Priority Areas Regain to maintain Production Grid Propose to regain this programme by reducing severity of cuts
