2 e-Science Update2 Overview Reading Campus Grid Summary Campus Grid Update e-Science Mapping Other Developments The Future User Story: Kevin Hodges Discussion

3 e-Science Update Reading Campus Grid Summary Access to about 500 lab/library PCs while they are not in use by students – The machines are available all night as the labs are closed – Ideal for research that involves running a program many times, where each run takes about an hour or less – It will work with any program that can be run on Linux machines Uses combination of Condor and CoLinux to run on Windows – Technology developed in SSE by Chris Chapman and Ian Bland – ITS service by Chris de la Force & others 3

6 e-Science Update Campus Grid Update Condor view statistics available Reading Campus Grid Now NGS Affiliate Link to Oxford Campus Grid and NGS resources – Using the NGS Interfaces – Technically complete with policy issues to finalise There has been about 11,500 CPU hours used in last 2 months; peak 200 CPUs Kevin to follow 6

7 e-Science Update e-Science Mapping Provide better software provision, resources and support to those working with e-Science To discover areas of academic and e-Science expertise, to enable inter-disciplinary collaborations to be formed inside and outside of the University using e-Science To inform the development of an e-Research agenda for the University So far 33 researchers and IT Staff interviewed/surveyed 7

8 e-Science Update Other Developments Providing support for users and groups to get started with e-Science /Grid: – e-Science Certificates – University resources (e.g. Campus Grid) – External resource (e.g. National Grid Support) ACET now have their BladeCentre, which is available for Collaborative University Research Projects – 3040 PowerPC GHz – 60 TByte storage – Myrinet Interconnect – 51st in the November 2008 top 500 list of supercomputers 8

9 e-Science Update The Future New Campus Grid developments Mapping will inform e-Research Plan e-Science technology allows new forms of collaboration – We are seeking to increase inter-disciplinary collaboration around e-Science. – The University of Reading is working closely with the Oxford e- Research Centre (OeRC) to promote collaboration between the two universities. 9
