Grid Community Gathers in Prague

Sep 18, 2012 |

This week, over 400 participants from the European research-computing community – and some of their American partners – came together in one of Europe’s most beloved cities, Prague. On Monday, GlobusEUROPE took over the third floor of the Hotel Clarion Congress, located in Vysocany, a modern section of the city, just 15 minutes away from the historic center of Prague and the famous Prague Castle. The remainder of the week, Tuesday through Friday, is dedicated to the European Grid Infrastructure Technical Forum.

Globus and Grid: Blazing Trails for Future Discovery

Sep 13, 2012 |

As participants from around the world make their way to Prague for the EGI Technical Forum, grid-enabled tools continue to facilitate global collaboration. Grid computing provides the backbone for a wide range of research, all the way from basic science to once-in-a-lifetime breakthroughs, like the recent achievements surrounding the elusive Higgs boson particle.

Helix Nebula: from Grid to Cloud and Lessons Learned So Far

Jul 17, 2012 |

European cloud computing is taking off as can be seen in the progress of Helix Nebula. The major pan-European cloud project announced last week that they were moving from the initial proof of concept phase to the start of the two-year pilot phase, which involves expanded proofs of concept and perhaps some additional demand side partners. Just a few months into the project, the participants discuss the challenges of migrating science into the cloud.
