In 2005, the German D-Grid Initiative started with 7 projects in the areas grid infrastructure, astronomy, climate research, high energy physics, engineering, medical research, and humanities. Recently, 12 additional 'community grid' projects kicked off.
In this presentation, we will present an overview on D-Grid and summarize our experience in creating the grid infrastructure and the grid application communities, and the challenges we are facing. We will conclude with a set of lessons learned and recommendations.
