Join the Largest International Grid Infrastructure

As a scientist, you can have access to unparalleled computing power and data storage capacity through a Grid infrastructure that is being established by the EU-funded project Enabling Grids for E-SciencE, more generally known as EGEE.

EGEE will provide researchers in academia and industry with round-the-clock access to major computing resources, independent of geographic location. The infrastructure will support distributed research communities, which share common Grid computing needs and are prepared to integrate their own computing infrastructures and agree on common access policies.

Any discipline which currently relies on advanced scientific computing resources can benefit from this project. See the fact sheet for more information concerning the EGEE project.

The Enabling Grids for E-sciencE project brings together scientists and engineers from more than 90 institutions in 32 countries world-wide to provide a seamless Grid infrastructure for e-Science that is available to scientists 24 hours-a-day. Conceived from the start as a four-year project, the second two-year phase started on 1 April 2006, and is funded by the European Commission.

Expanding from originally two scientific fields, high energy physics and life sciences, EGEE now integrates applications from many other scientific fields, ranging from geology to computational chemistry. Generally, the EGEE Grid infrastructure is ideal for any scientific research especially where the time and resources needed for running the applications are considered impractical when using traditional IT infrastructures.

The monifarm monitoring web page provides a live status of the UCY testbed. For a live update on the grid infrastructure, visit the LCG2 Real Time Monitor site and start the applet.
