1 S.L.LloydGrid Steering Committee 8 March 2002 Slide 1 Status of GridPP Overview Financial Summary Recruitment Status EU DataGrid UK Grid Status GridPP and the e-Science Centres

2 S.L.LloydGrid Steering Committee 8 March 2002 Slide 2 GridPP Overview Provide architecture and middleware Use the Grid with simulation data Use the Grid with real data Future LHC Experiments Running US Experiments Build prototype Tier-1 and Tier-2s in the UK and implement middleware in experiments

3 S.L.LloydGrid Steering Committee 8 March 2002 Slide 3 Allocation of GridPP Funds Tier-0 Applications Tier-1/A Middleware Applications/System

4 S.L.LloydGrid Steering Committee 8 March 2002 Slide 4 Recruitment EU Funded Posts (Middleware/Testbed) –All 5 in post + 1 additional from 1/2/02 EDG Unfunded Posts (Middleware/Testbed) –13.5 out of 15 in post –(1 under offer, 0.5 starts 1/4/ from CeSC) GridPP Posts (Applications + Tier1/A) –Allocated Dec 2001 –~7 out of 15 ~in post CERN Posts –First Round > 100 Applicants –12 Offers, 1 Refusal, 1 Postponed –3 Fellows, 5 Staff members, 2 UK University Staff –4 in Applications, 2 Data Management, 3 Systems, 1 Management

5 S.L.LloydGrid Steering Committee 8 March 2002 Slide 5 Recruitment Overall: Initially problems with EU Funded posts at RAL. Since then no real problems recruiting - mixture of academic and software industry backgrounds. Delays mainly caused by (University) bureaucracy.

6 S.L.LloydGrid Steering Committee 8 March 2002 Slide 6 EU DataGrid First EU Review of DataGrid completed last week. –Verbal feedback very positive. –Reviewers commended overall good performance. –Several areas above expectations. –All deliverables accepted as they are. –Earlier UK concerns successfully overcome. UK Contributions –Architectures –Testbed-1 –Network Monitoring –Storage Element –Certificates & Security –R-GMA –LCFG –MDS deployment –Spitfire –…

9 S.L.LloydGrid Steering Committee 8 March 2002 Slide 9 EDG Testbed Status For EU Review of DataGrid on 1st March a Testbed 1.1 grid of 5 sites was constructed: –CERN, RAL, IN2P3-Lyon, CNAF-Bologna, NIKHEF. –The demos included jobs running at all sites and moving data. –This had the required functionality working but proved unreliable. An attempt will be made to make it stable in Release –Then it will be released to more sites In UK we have a rollout plan that will start then. –Most sites plan to be involved in the GridPP Grid in some way. –Core UK sites at first will be RAL, Bristol, Manchester, IC where we have funded WP6 effort.
