  • EU FP7 INFRASTRUCTURES agINFRA: High Performance Computing eInfrastructure for Agriculture Antun Balaz Institute of Physics BelgradeFifth Belgrade International Open Access Conference 2012, agINFRA Workshop, 18 May 2012, Belgrade
  • EU FP7 INFRASTRUCTURES What is agINFRA? • A 3-years project, co-funded by the European Union, developing data infrastructure and services for the global agricultural research community • Involved are FAO and other information and techno- logy partners from Europe, China, Ecuador and India • Together with related initiatives aiming for integrated services and open access dataFifth Belgrade International Open Access Conference 2012, agINFRA Workshop, 18 May 2012, Belgrade
  • EU FP7 INFRASTRUCTURES The approach in a few words • Linked Data for semantic interoperability of heterogeneous data • Grid/cloud services for massive data aggregation and heavy infrastructure service tasks • Integrated services for search, access and usage • Rich toolbox for working on and with the data, e.g., repository managers, service providers, research organizations and projectsFifth Belgrade International Open Access Conference 2012, agINFRA Workshop, 18 May 2012, Belgrade
  • EU FP7 INFRASTRUCTURES For a research community that... • Collaborates to enable sustainable agriculture and food security for all • Works in different regions as well as globally • Applies knowledge and methods from different disciplines • Shares research results in a trustful and open wayFifth Belgrade International Open Access Conference 2012, agINFRA Workshop, 18 May 2012, Belgrade
  • EU FP7 INFRASTRUCTURESFifth Belgrade International Open Access Conference 2012, agINFRA Workshop, 18 May 2012, Belgrade
  • EU FP7 INFRASTRUCTURES Serbian HPC stakeholder: IPB • The Institute of Physics Belgrade (http://www.ipb.ac.rs/) is founded in 1961 by the Serbian government with a mission to conduct high quality research in physics and related sciences including applications, and at present it contributes to more than 10% of the total new scientific knowledge generated in the country. • IPB is highly recognized research institute and partner at the European level, being host to four EU Centers of Excellence: – CX-CMCS (Centre of Excellence for Computational Modeling of Complex Systems), – OPSA (Centre of Excellence for Optical Spectroscopy Applied in Physics, Material Science and Environmental Protection), – IPB-CNP (Reinforcing Experimental Centre for Non-Equilibrium Studies with Application in Nano-Technologies, Etching of Integrated Circuits and Environmental Research) – QUPOM (Reinforcing the Centre for Quantum and Optical Metrology) • IPB is partner in a large number of Framework Programme projects, as well as a host to several Marie Curie grantsFifth Belgrade International Open Access Conference 2012, agINFRA Workshop, 18 May 2012, Belgrade
  • EU FP7 INFRASTRUCTURES IPB, Grid and HPC • In 2008, IPB is designated by the Ministry of Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia as the referent institution for Grid and HPC in the country, and appointed to represent Serbia in European HPC-related projects such as PRACE RI implementation phases • IPB is also designated by the Ministry as a coordinating institution for the seven- year National Supercomputing Initiative (2010-2016).Fifth Belgrade International Open Access Conference 2012, agINFRA Workshop, 18 May 2012, Belgrade
  • EU FP7 INFRASTRUCTURES Grid resources - AEGIS• AEGIS: Academic and Educational Grid Initiative of Serbia - http://www.aegis.rs/• Founded in April 2005• Mission: to provide reliable and sustainable Grid infrastructure for Serbian researchers• Coordination: Institute of Physics Belgrade• 25 Members: • 4 university computer centers; 17 public research organizations; 2 international collaborations; 2 SMEs• 60+ active users• 6 certified + 5 pilot Grid sites, 1094 CPUs, 30 TBs• 6 completed FP6 and FP7 projects: • SEE-GRID, SEE-GRID-2, SEE-GRID-SCI • EGEE, EGEE-II, EGEE-III• 2 active Grid-infrastructure projects: • EGI-InSPIRE, agINFRA 8 Fifth Belgrade International Open Access Conference 2012, agINFRA Workshop, 18 May 2012, Belgrade
  • EU FP7 INFRASTRUCTURES HPC resources – Blue Danube• Blue Danube Supercomputing Initiative - http://www.bluedanube.rs/• Lunched in November 2008• Mission: to establish the National Supercomputing and Data Storage Facility and pave the way for the network of Serbian HPC centers• Coordination: Institute of Physics Belgrade• Current installation: PARADOX cluster • 88 x ( 2x4-core Xeon E5345@2.33 GHz ) = 704 CPU (1 GB of RAM / core) • 50 TB of disk space, Gigabit Ethernet• Upcoming installation (2012): • 4000 x86_64-based CPUs • InfiniBand interconnection • M2090 NVidia Tesla cluster • LINPACK: 40 Tflops • Will be available both locally and through the Grid interface• 3 active projects: • PRACE-1IP, PRACE-2IP, HP-SEE 9Fifth Belgrade International Open Access Conference 2012, agINFRA Workshop, 18 May 2012, Belgrade
