EGEE III ■ May 1st 2008 to April 30th 2010 ■ Budget reduced by about 50% ■ Subject to severe FP7 regulations ■ SA1 to be handled through ISRAGRID Vision of EGI Formation of National Grid Initiatives (NGIs) which unite efforts within each country, providing a single point of contact for coordinated efforts
  11. 11. IsraGrid ■ A national committee recommended last July to establish a National Grid Computing Infrastructure. ■ Waiting for final approval by the Government ■ To be used only for R&D purposes ■ To be used by all the Academic institutes and the Israeli High-Tech industry ■ Secured access ■ Managed by the IUCC
  12. 12. MOSIX A management system targeted for HPC on x86 Linux clusters and multi-cluster organizational grids Main features: – supports parallel processes and batch jobs – Automatic resource discovery – Adaptive workload distribution by process migration Outcome: the grid and each cluster performs like a single computer with multiple processors Guest processes can’t modify resources in hosting nodes
  13. 13. The Hebrew University Organizational Grid • 15 MOSIX clusters ~400 nodes • In life-sciences, medical school, chemistry and computer science • Applications: Nano-technology, Molecular dynamics, Protein folding, Genomics (BLAT, BLAST, SW), Meteorological weather forecast (WRF), Navier-Stokes equations and turbulence (CFD) , CPU simulator of new hardware design (SimpleScalar) More information at http://www.MOSIX.org

  16. 16. GMS – Grid Monitoring System  Distributively store all logs of a large batch system in local databases  Apply distributed data mining on logs  Implementation using Condor  Taken up by Intel NetBatch team: started a $3M project
  17. 17. SuperLink Online  http://bioinfo.cs.technion.ac.il/superlink-online/ a production portal for geneticists working at hospitals  Submitted tasks contain gene mapping results from lab experiments  Portal user sees a single computer (!)  Implemented using a hierarchy of Condor pools − Highest/smallest pool in Technion (DSL) − Lowest/largest in Madison (GLOW).  In progress: linkage@home and EGEE BioMed implementations.
  18. 18. The Dependable Grid  Provide a High Availability (HA) Library as a service for any Grid component  HA for Condor matchmaker with zero loc changes (!!!)  Part of Condor 6.8 distribution  Deployed in many large Condor production pools  Plans to develop and support an open-source distribution
