ACDC, Western New York, and New York State Grid
With nearly $4M in funds from NSF (ITR, MRI, CRI),
and support from the
Center for Computational Research
and Open Science Grid,
the Cyberinfrastructure Laboratory
The goal of
NYS Grid is to bring a mixture of organizations, both public
and private, onto a shared grid within New York State. The nodes on the
grid will include compute systems, storage devices, visualization systems,
sensors, imaging systems, and a wide variety of Internet-ready devices.
To date, the Cyberinfrastructure Laboratory has reached more than a dozen
organizations throughout the state. Further, with the decision by
to use the CI Lab's NYS Grid as their underlying infrastructure, a number
of additional sites have been brought on line.
- created a Buffalo-based grid (ACDC-Grid) to gain
experience with grid computing, including porting
to the grid,
developing a web portal
in order to provide easy access to a grid,
developing a lightweight
grid monitoring system,
and developing a
generalized technique for porting applications to the grid,
- implemented a grid in Western New York
that brought in
a private 4-year college, and
a public 4-year college to focus
on outreach and training, and
- expanded and enhanced the WNY-Grid into a grid throughout New York State
with a goal of bringing an integrated data and
computing grid to the desktop of users throughout the state.
