We would like to introduce the brief history and report the current status of Computing Research Center at KEK. Many activities and near future plans on R&D, for example, networking, computer security, and private cloud deployment, which are submitted to the HEPiX workshop this time, will be summarized.
The Tokyo Tier-2 site, which is located in International Center for Elementary Particle Physics (ICEPP) at the University of Tokyo, is providing computing resources for the ATLAS experiment in the WLCG.
Updates on the site since the Spring 2017 meeting and a migration plan for the next system upgrade will be presented.
2017 has been a year of change for the Australian HEP site. The loss of a staff member, migration of batch system, and increased use of cloud are just some of the changes happening in Australia. We will provide an update on the happenings in Australia.
ASGC site report on facility deployment, recent activities, collaborations and plans.
This report will talk about the current status and recent updates at IHEP Site since the Spring 2017 report, covering computing, network, storage and other related work.
We will present the latest status of the GSDC. And migration plan of administrative system will be presented.
News from CERN since the workshop at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
This is the PIC report to HEPIX Fall 2017.
BNL's RHIC/ATLAS Computing Facility (RACF) serves the computing needs of experiments at RHIC, while also serving as the US ATLAS Tier-1 facility. In recent years, RACF has been expanding to serve a growing list of scientific communities at BNL. This presentation provides an overview of the RACF, highlighting significant developments since the last HEPiX meeting in Budapest.
A brief report on Italian T1 activities.
News about GridKa Tier-1 and other KIT IT projects and infrastructure. We'll focus on our experiences with our new 20+PB online storage installation.
An update on activities at the UK Tier1 @ RAL
News and updates from the NDGF Tier-1 site.
Focus on this report will be new disk and tape resources and some performance numbers from both.
Also some site news from our distributed sites.
PDSF, the Parallel Distributed Systems Facility, was moved to Lawrence Berkeley National Lab from Oakland CA in 2016. The cluster has been in continuous operation since 1996 serving high energy physics research. The cluster is a tier-1 site for Star, a tier-2 site for Alice and a tier-3 site for Atlas.
The PDSF cluster is in transition this year, moving the batch system from UGE to SLURM...
Site report, news and ongoing activities at the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS-LCG2), running ATLAS, CMS and LHCb.
We will present an update on the ATLAS Great Lakes Tier-2 (AGLT2) site since the Spring 2017 report including changes to our networking, storage and deployed middleware. This will include the status of our transition to CentOS/SL7 for both our servers and worker nodes, our upgrade of VMware from 5.5 to 6.5 and our upgrade of Lustre to 2.10.1 + ZFS 0.7.1 as well as our work to install Open...
We will present an update on our sites and cover our work with various efforts
like xrootd storage elements, opportunistic usage of general HPC resources,
We will also report on our latest hardware purchases, as well as
the status of network updates.
We conclude with a summary of successes and problems we encountered
and indicate directions for future work.
As a major WLCG/OSG T2 site, the University of Wisconsin-Madison CMS T2 has consistently been delivering highly reliable and productive services towards large scale CMS MC production/processing, data storage, and physics analysis for last 11 years. The site utilises high throughput computing (HTCondor), highly available storage system (Hadoop), scalable distributed software systems (CVMFS),...
