  • I want to thank Chris for the kind remarks, and all of you for your interest. So what is this about? Let me have a couple of tries, to narrow it down.
  • grid computing

    1. 1. Grid Computing UITS IT Seminar Series June 2001
    2. 2. Beyond the Net, lies the Grid. <ul><li>The Net allows users everywhere to share information. </li></ul><ul><li>The Grid will allow users to share raw computing power. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It’s under construction. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
    3. 3. What is a Grid? <ul><li>persistent networked environments integrating geographically distributed supercomputers , large databases , and high end instruments </li></ul><ul><li>coordinated resource sharing and problem solving in dynamic virtual organizations </li></ul>
    4. 4. Grid computing is related to but not identical with <ul><li>Parallel computing </li></ul><ul><li>Distributed computing </li></ul><ul><li>Pervasive computing </li></ul>
    5. 5. Who is building them? <ul><li>Demonstration – SC98 </li></ul><ul><li>TransPac link from Internet2 to APAN </li></ul><ul><li>NASA, DOE, DOD, NSF </li></ul>
    6. 6. It’s for real. <ul><li>Used to construct: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>collaborative engineering systems </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>real-time instrument control systems </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>problem solving environments </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>to perform record-setting scientific simulations. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    7. 7. You don’t have to be a computer scientist…
    8. 8. The bandwagon
    9. 9. Student Technology Centers <ul><li>Nearly 1000 new computers </li></ul><ul><li>Fast ethernet connections </li></ul><ul><li>SETI@Home screensaver accumulated CPU-hours at the rate of 552 processors on a 24x7 basis </li></ul><ul><li>Challenges: resource management, security, migration </li></ul><ul><li>Testbed project – Condor </li></ul>
    10. 10. The goal is to create … <ul><li>A scalable, seamless extension of your access point </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>through pervasive networks </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>to a set of resources </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>tied together by a set of ubiquitous common distributed services . </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
    11. 11. A scalable, seamless extension of your access point through pervasive networks ...
    12. 12. A scalable, seamless extension of your access point through pervasive networks to a set of resources … <ul><li>Parallel computing is harder </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>There’s more to think about. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The technology is less mature. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>It need not even help </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Moving bits is slower than crunching them. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Formula for success: communication/computation << 1 </li></ul></ul></ul>
    13. 13. A scalable, seamless extension of your access point through pervasive networks to a set of resources tied together by common services.
    14. 14. To Do: <ul><li>Building the middleware, protocols, interoperable communications libraries </li></ul><ul><li>Building resource management </li></ul><ul><li>Building social infrastructure </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Economic exchange mechanisms </li></ul></ul></ul>
    15. 15. Building on the Internet, the WWW <ul><li>Uniform naming </li></ul><ul><li>A seamless, scalable information service </li></ul><ul><li>A powerful new meta-data language: XML </li></ul><ul><ul><li>SOAP - simple object access protocol - </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Uses XML for message encoding, HTTP for protocol. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>XML-RPC may become standard mechanism for Grid Services. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    16. 16. Why bother? Because you have to. <ul><li>Big calculations – more processors, more memory </li></ul>
    17. 17. Other reasons: <ul><li>Share resources </li></ul><ul><li>Share ideas </li></ul>
