We employ the HEP-SPEC06 benchmark, developed by the HEPiX CPU benchmarking working group, to evaluate CPU performance of a number of virtual machines configurations for the highly CPU loaded HEP worker node. Benchmarks are performed on 8 different models of AMD and Intel CPU spanning 2003 to 2008 generation architectures. We demonstrate that multi-core worker node can run n VMs where n is...

Cloud computing provides commodity Virtualized computers on demand, Grid computing has underlying batch queues which may be integrated with the Virtualization technology can give the same predictable run time environment we know of from the Cloud Computing world. Two groups have achieved Virtulized worker nodes using two different batch queues. Details of the two implementations using...

This talk will cover the various security implications of the use of Cloud resources attached to the HEP Grids. There are several issues related to trust, policy and operational security in addition to the more general security issues of virtualisation.
