The NorduGrid project: using Globus toolkit for building GRID infrastructure

Ellert, Mattias; Konstantinov, Aleksandr; Konya, Balazs LU ; Smirnova, Oxana LU and Wäänänen, Anders (2003) In Nuclear Instruments & Methods in Physics Research. Section A: Accelerators, Spectrometers, Detectors, and Associated Equipment 502(2-3). p.407-410
Abstract
The NorduGrid is the pioneering Grid project in Scandinavia. The purpose of the project is to create a Grid computing infrastructure in Nordic countries. The cornerstone of the infrastructure adopted at NorduGrid is the Globus toolkit developed at Argonne National Laboratory and University of Southern California. It is, however, missing several important high-level services. With the need to provide working production system, NorduGrid has developed its own solution for the most essential parts. An early prototype implementation of the proposed architecture is being tested and further developed. Aiming at simple but yet functional system capable of handling common computational problems encountered in the Nordic scientific communities, we... (More)
