The ATLAS Spanish Tier-1 and Tier-2s have more than 15 years of experience in the deployment and development of LHC computing components and their successful operations. The sites are already actively participating in, and even coordinating, emerging R&D computing activities developing the new computing models needed in the LHC Run3 and HL-LHC periods.
In this contribution, we present details on the integration of new components, such as HPC computing resources, to execute ATLAS simulation workflows; the development of new techniques to improve efficiency in a cost-effective way, such as storage and CPU federations; and improvements in Data Organization, Management and Access through storage consolidations ("data-lakes"), the use of data Caches, and improving experiment data catalogues, like Event Index. The design and deployment of novel analysis facilities using GPUs together with CPUs and techniques like Machine Learning will also be presented.
ATLAS Tier-1 and Tier-2 sites in Spain are, and will be, contributing to significant R&D in computing, evaluating different models for improving performance of computing and data storage capacity in the LHC High Luminosity era.
