05/07/00LHCb Computing Model Meeting (CERN) LHCb(UK) Computing Status Glenn Patrick Prototype (Tier 1) UK national computing centre Bid to Joint Infrastructure Fund (JIF) for £5.9M. Submitted in Feb 2000, outcome known in ~ Nov. Sited at RAL. Shared between ALICE/ATLAS/CMS/LHCb. All UK LHC institutes signed bid. Integrated Resources Processors (PC99-450MHz) Disk (TB) Tape (TB)
UK Tier 2 Centres? Liverpool MAP/COMPASS (LHCb/ATLAS) Funded by Joint Research Equipment Initiative (JREI) PCs (400MHz,PII) and 3*1TB disk nodes. Operational since December Prototype Scottish Computing Centre (LHCb/ATLAS) Bid to Joint Research Equipment Initiative (JREI) May Outcome known in ~ December. MC prod.facility (128 cpus+1TB RAID) at Glasgow. 5TB RAID disk array + server at Edinburgh.
Other Initiatives Long Term Science Review (PPARC) LHC computing/Grid identified as priority. Government Spending Review - indication in July, details known in October/November? EU Data Grid Proposal UK (PPARC) is one of the lead partners. IBM(UK) is industrial partner. Committees and teams evolving. Preliminary answer in July?
From UK Town Meeting Which Grid Topology for LHCb(UK)? Flexibility important. CERN Tier 1 INFN RAL IN2P3 Tier 2 Liverpool Glasgow Edinburgh Department Desktop users Tier 0 etc….
