Abstract
The NorduGrid project designed a Grid architecture with the primary goal to meet the requirements of production

tasks of the LHC experiments. While it is meant to be a rather generic Grid system, it puts emphasis

on batch processing suitable for problems encountered in High Energy Physics. The NorduGrid architecture

implementation uses the Globus ToolkitTM as the foundation for various components, developed by the project.

While introducing new services, the NorduGrid does not modify the Globus tools, such that the two can eventually

co-exist. The NorduGrid topology is decentralized, avoiding a single point of failure. The NorduGrid

architecture is thus a light-weight, non-invasive and... (More)

most challenging tasks of High Energy Physics. (Less)
