Project(s) or EGEE activity presenting the demo or poster (project or activity names only)

the activity has been performed in the framework of SA1 Italy


The SPAGO (Shared Proxy Approach for Grid Objects) architecture provides a flexible solution to add HPC resource to a gLite based GRID, minimizing the middleware invasiveness on the local infrastructure and enabling the connection to systems and architectures not yet supported by the standard gLite software.
As a result this allows a wider array of scientific software to be run on the EGEE Grid and a wider segment of the research community to participate in the project, expanding significantly the penetration of the EGEE GRID outside its traditional domain of the distributed and capacity focused computation. The poster describes the SPAGO implementation (GPFS based) used to put a section of the CRESCO HPC system (2720 cores interconnected by Infiniband, http://www.cresco.enea.it) the GRID, and its behavior while in production, including scalability issues. Statistics about the production system utilization and reliability will also be shown.

Special requirements other than the set up mentioned in the CfA text.
