Grid'5000 users finalists of the SCALE'2013 challenge

Two submissions from Grid'5000 users took part in the final of the international SCALE'2013 challenge (held with CCGrid'2013):

  • D. Balouek, A. Lèbre, F. Quesnel Flauncher and DVMS -- Deploying and Scheduling Thousands of Virtual Machines on Hundreds of Nodes Distributed Geographically
  • Eugen Feller, Christine Morin, Matthieu Simonin, Anne-Cécile Orgerie, and Yvon Jégou -- Scalability of the Snooze Autonomic Cloud Management System.

The first proposition presents the deployment and scheduling of thousands of virtual machines, conducted with the Flauncher and DVMS frameworks, across the Grid'5000 testbed. The frameworks have been able to deploy and schedule up to 10000 VMs during the tests. This research has been conducted in the context of the INRIA Hemera initiative.

The second proposition presents the Snooze architecture and focus on the following aspects :

  • System set up scalability and resources consumption,
  • Self-healing capabilities.

The deployment of Snooze were distributed over several sites of the Grid'5000 testbed. The framework has been able to start 11000 of system services, recover thousands of failures and used to launch large hadoop/mapreduce experiments. This research has been conducted in the context of the INRIA Snooze ADT.

The 2012 Inria award for research and innovation was awarded to David Margery, who has been the Grid'5000 chief technical officer since 2007. more info here


Report on Support for Experimental Computer Science workshop available

Following the Supercomputing 2011 Workshop on Support for Experimental Science, a report was released, which distills the discussion from that workshop into a consensus on the state of the field and directions for moving forward. Full report available; featured on isgtw.org and hpcwire.


Grid'5000 users finalists of the SCALE'2012 challenge

The following paper took part in the final of the international SCALE'2012 challenge: L. Sarzyniec, S. Badia, E. Jeanvoine, L. Nussbaum Scalability Testing of the Kadeploy Cluster Deployment System usingVirtual Machines on Grid'5000 (CCGRID/SCALE’2012, Ottawa, Canada, May 2012). (see paper on HAL)

The paper presents a large-scale execution of Kadeploy on Grid'5000, using up to 4000 virtual machines hosted on 635 nodes from four sites, gathered together in a global KaVLAN network. The work was done in the context of the INRIA ADT Kadeploy project.


Announcing the IaaS on Grid'5000 Workshop - 2012 to be held in Rennes, April 23rd 2012

Grid'5000 users are invited to take part to a half day workshop in Rennes on April 23rd, 2012, followed by an optional 2 days coding camp for all Grid'5000 users working on the deployment of open source Iaas stacks (OpenNebula, Nimbus, OpenStack, ..). During the coding camp on the following days, participants will be able to start collaborating on consolidating their tools. Details on the event's page


Bonfire-on-demand.png

Using Grid'5000 for on-demand extension of an OpenNebula installation

This video shows how the BonFIRE project's testbed operated in Rennes can be extended on-demand over Grid'5000 resources. This is a powerfull demonstration of KaVLAN usage and of how Grid'5000 capabilities can be exposed to specific users with the Grid'5000 API. Here Grid'5000 resources are dynamically added to an OpenNebula installation.

Grid'5000 at a glance

Grid'5000 sites
  • Grid'5000 is a scientific instrument for the study of large scale parallel and distributed systems. It aims at providing a highly reconfigurable, controlable and monitorable experimental platform to its users. The initial aim (circa 2003) was to reach 5000 processors in the platform. It has been reframed at 5000 cores, and was reached during winter 2008-2009.
  • The infrastructure of Grid'5000 is geographically distributed on different sites hosting the instrument, initially 9 sites in France (10 since 2011). Porto Alegre, Brazil is now officially becoming the first site abroad.

Sites:


Grid'5000 allows experiments in all these software layers
  • Grid'5000 is a research effort developing a large scale nation wide infrastructure for large scale parallel and distributed computing research.
  • 19 laboratories are involved in France with the objective of providing the community a testbed allowing experiments in all the software layers between the network protocols up to the applications.

The current plans are to extend from the 9 initial sites each with 100 to a thousand PCs, connected by the RENATER Education and Research Network to a bigger platform including a few sites outside France not necessarily connected through a dedicated network connection. Sites in Brazil and Luxembourg should join shortly, and Reims has now joined.


All sites in France are connected to RENATER with a 10Gb/s link, except Reims, for the time linked through a 1Gb/s


This high collaborative research effort is funded by INRIA, CNRS, the Universities of all sites and some regional councils.


ALADDIN-G5K : ensuring the development of Grid'5000

For the 2008-2012 period, Engineers ensuring the development and day to day support of the infrastructure are mostly provided by INRIA, under the ADT ALADDIN-G5K initiative.

HEMERA: Demonstrating ambitious up-scaling techniques on Grid'5000

Héméra is an INRIA Large Wingspan project, started in 2010, that aims at demonstrating ambitious up-scaling techniques for large scale distributed computing by carrying out several dimensioning experiments on the Grid’5000 infrastructure, at animating the scientific community around Grid’5000 and at enlarging the Grid’5000 community by helping newcomers to make use of Grid’5000.

Initial Rationale

The foundations of Grid'5000 have emerged from a thorough analysis and numerous discussions about methodologies used for scientific research in the Grid domain. A report presents the rationale for Grid'5000.

In addition to theory, simulators and emulators, there is a strong need for large scale testbeds where real life experimental conditions hold. The size of Grid'5000, in terms of number of sites and number of processors per site, was established according to the scale of the experiments and the number of researchers involved in the project.

Current funding

As from June 2008, INRIA is the main contributor to Grid'5000 funding.
