* '''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, initialy 9 in France. Porto Alegre, Brazil is now officially becoming the 10th site.

The current plans are to extend from the 9 initial sites each with 100 to a thousand PCs, connected by the [http://www.renater.fr 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.
 
 
All sites in France are connected to [http://www.renater.fr RENATER] with a 10Gb/s link.
 
 
 
 
This high collaborative research effort is funded by INRIA, CNRS, the Universities of all sites and some regional councils.
 
 
 
 
== 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 [http://www-sop.inria.fr/aci/grid/public/Library/rapport-grid5000-V3.pdf 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.

Grid'5000

Grid'5000 is a large-scale and flexible testbed for experiment-driven research in all areas of computer science, with a focus on parallel and distributed computing including Cloud, HPC and Big Data and AI.

Key features:

  • provides access to a large amount of resources: 15000 cores, 800 compute-nodes grouped in homogeneous clusters, and featuring various technologies: PMEM, GPU, SSD, NVMe, 10G and 25G Ethernet, Infiniband, Omni-Path
  • highly reconfigurable and controllable: researchers can experiment with a fully customized software stack thanks to bare-metal deployment features, and can isolate their experiment at the networking layer
  • advanced monitoring and measurement features for traces collection of networking and power consumption, providing a deep understanding of experiments
  • designed to support Open Science and reproducible research, with full traceability of infrastructure and software changes on the testbed
  • a vibrant community of 500+ users supported by a solid technical team


Read more about our teams, our publications, and the usage policy of the testbed. Then get an account, and learn how to use the testbed with our Getting Started tutorial and the rest of our Users portal.

Grid'5000 is merging with FIT to build the SILECS Infrastructure for Large-scale Experimental Computer Science. Read an Introduction to SILECS (April 2018)

Rss.svgUpgrade of the graffiti-13 node in Nancy

We are happy to announce that the graffiti-13 node on the Nancy site in production queue has been upgraded:

its 4 GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11GB have been replaced by 4 RTX 6000 24GB GDDR6[1].

Reservation example : oarsub -q production -p "host='graffiti-13.nancy.grid5000.fr'" -I

Rss.svgYeti nodes now equipped with 2 NVMe of 1.6 TB and made exotic resources

The yeti nodes of the Grenoble site now have 2 NVMe drives of 1.6TB again (back to their original configuration of 2018) and the troll nodes have new NVMe (1.6TB also, but newer model).

The 4 new NVMe were financed by the Software Heritage project. Many Thanks.

Since the 4 yeti nodes are the only quadri-cpu resources of Grid'5000 and with 2 NVMe, they are now defined as exotic resources, and must be reserved with `-t exotic` in the oarsub arguments.

Rss.svgDocker cache available inside Grid5000

With the growing use of Docker, you might have experienced some rate limiting when pulling images due to the Docker Hub recent policy change.

As a result, we now provide a Docker cache accessible from inside Grid'5000 at the following address http://docker-cache.grid5000.fr

For configuration instructions and more information, see: Using docker-cache.grid5000.fr

Rss.svgGrid'5000 environments now use zstd compression

We are moving the default image archive format used for Grid'5000 environments from tar.gz to tar.zst. Switching to zstd allows for significantly faster decompression speed.

This change is transparent for most usages. Kadeploy will use zstd transparently for environments using it (e.g. new environments), the main impact is that deployment will be faster.

If kameleon is used to generate an environment (thus creating an environment description file and an image archive), it will now automatically use zstd by default.

However if you manually modify the description of an environment and/or regenerate an image archive with tgz-g5k (using the -z switch for zstd), you may have to make sure that both use the same compression.

This change is part of a larger effort to improve the performance of kadeploy.
