National grids like those listed below combine national computing resources to create powerful grid computing resources. A full list of 42 National Grid Initiatives involved in the European Grid Initiative can be found here. Is your country not mentioned? Contact us to have it included.
Fermilab Computing Division
National Grid Service
|SYNOPSIS||The first D-Grid projects started in September 2005 with the goal of developing a distributed, integrated resource platform for high-performance computing and related services to enable the processing of large amounts of scientific data and information.|
|PROJECT DETAILS||DutchGrid||The Netherlands|
|SYNOPSIS||DutchGrid is the platform for grid computing and technology in the Netherlands. Open to all institutions for research and test-bed activities, DutchGrid aims to coordinate various grid deployment efforts and to offer a forum for the exchange of experiences on grid technologies.|
ENEAGRID makes use of GRID technologies to provide an integrated production environment including all the High Performance and High Throughput computational resources available in ENEA, the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and the Environment. Interoperability with other grid infrastructures is currently in operation.
|PROJECT DETAILS||Fermilab Computing Division||Fermilab in the U.S.|
FermiGrid united Fermilab’s computing resources into a single grid infrastructure, changing the way that computing was done at the lab by improving efficiency and making better use of resources. Now involved in developing and supporting innovative computing solutions and services for Fermilab.
|SYNOPSIS||Grid-Ireland fosters and promotes grid activities in Ireland, involving partnersacross the country..|
|SYNOPSIS||Hungrid was the first official Hungarian Virtual Organisation of EGEE and has become a national alliance from which NGI_HU has emerged. Hungrid joins the grid resources of all national education and/or research institutes of the Hungarian Grid Competence Centre. The aim of Hungrid VO is to allow grid users of Hungarian academic and educational institutes to perform computing activities relevant for their research. Thus the VO functions as a catch-all for all the Hungarian participants that do not (yet) have an established VO in their respective field of research.|
|PROJECT DETAILS||MetaCentrum||Czech Republic|
|SYNOPSIS||The MetaCentrum project, an activity of the CESNET association, covers a majority of activities concerning Grids, super-, cluster- and grid computing and/or high performance computing in general in the Czech Republic. MetaCentrum is responsible for building the National Grid and its integration to related international activities.
MetaCentrum operates and manages distributed computing infrastructure consisting of computing and storage resources owned by CESNET as well as resources of co-operative academic centres within the Czech Republic.
|PROJECT DETAILS||National Grid Service||UK|
|SYNOPSIS||The NGS aims to provide coherent electronic access for UK researchers to all computational and data based resources and facilities. Join their mailing list for up-to-the-minute NGS action..|
|PROJECT DETAILS||NERSC||National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center in the U.S.|
Users can access several NERSC resources via Globus grid interfaces using X509 grid certificates. NERSC is part of the Open Science Grid (OSG), and is available to select OSG Virtual Organizations for compute and storage resources.
|SYNOPSIS||NorGrid aims to establish and maintain a national grid infrastructure in Norway. NorGrid is the Norwegian component in the third phase of the EGEE project.|
|SYNOPSIS||Swegrid is a Swedish national computational resource, consisting of over 3000 cores spread out over 6 clusters at 6 different sites across Sweden. The sites are connected through the high-performance GigaSunet network.|
|PROJECT DETAILS||TeraGrid||U.S. supercomputing grid|
|SYNOPSIS||TeraGrid aims to build and deploy the world's largest, fastest, most comprehensive, distributed infrastructure for open scientific research. It involves involves partners across the U.S.
