  5. 5. National backbone research network  ~100 Institutes  35 Points of presence  Optical fibers • 15yr dark fiber lease (IRU) • 8.410 Km • Metro networks in Athens and Thessaloniki • Local fiber connections in 34 cities
  6. 6. GRNET: Part of the pan-European research network
  7. 7. Main GRNET DataCenter• 25 racks• 400+ dense servers• 30.000 Virtual Machines• 4PetaBytes storage• 1.7MW /16ΚW per rack• 10Gbps secure interconnection• Disaster Recovery Datacenter (outside Athens) • To be deployed nearby a hydroelectic station of PPC (Green Datacenter)
  8. 8. GR-IX: National Greek Internet Exchange
  9. 9. Pithos On-line storage service (Cloud Storage)• 50GByte per user (member of the R&E community)• Application integration• File sharing and synchronisation• User authentication via federated AAI
  10. 10. ~Okeanos a new Infrastructure-as-a-Service facility- Server, network, storage for All: - Universities, Research Centers/Institutes, Labs, Courses, Ac. Staff, Students, Researchers, Adm. Personnel- Fast set-up, using friendly on-line tools- Equivalent to Amazon, Rackspace, Nimbula, Nebula, GoGrid commercial services- Based on open-source components- Now in alpha testing (300 users)- More than 30.000 virtual machines - 4PetaBytes storage
  11. 11. ~Okeanosvirtual components Virtual Machines Virtual Ethernets Virtual Disks Virtual Firewalls
  12. 12. ~Okeanostypical virtual set-up
  13. 13. ~Okeanos service characteristics• Goal: Production-quality IaaS• Target group: GRNET’s customers – direct: IT depts of connected institutions – indirect: university students, researchers in academia• Users manage resources over – a simple, web UI, or – a REST API, for full programmatic control
  14. 14. Cloud-based Services for R&E• Gr/SSaS• e:Presence• Eudoxus• live@GRNET• Student discount cards service• Anafandon• HPC delivery• Digital school services
  15. 15. GRNET VisionUnified e-infrastructures: network, computing& storage: – Feasible (Economies of scale) – Sustainable (low TCO) – Reliable (professional support) – Advanced (high-performance for all member institutions) – Scalable (standards-based) – Adding value (enhanced R&E applications)
