* '''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.
+
==Latest news==
* 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.

* '''Grid'5000''' is a research effort developing a '''large scale nation wide infrastructure for large scale parallel and distributed computing research'''.
 
 
* '''19 [[Grid5000:Laboratories|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 [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, and Reims has now joined.
 
 
 
 
All sites in France are connected to [http://www.renater.fr 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.

[[Hemera|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 [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)

Latest news

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.

Rss.svgGuix package manager available on Grid'5000

We now offer the possibility to use Guix on Grid'5000 as a package manager to install new software or build container images without the need to be root.

It is available on frontends and nodes (on standard or deployed *-nfs or *-big environments with your user).

This work has been done in collaboration with the Guix HPC team.

For more information see: Guix

Rss.svgNew cluster "grouille" available in Nancy

We have the pleasure to announce that a new cluster named "grouille" is available in Nancy in the default queue.

It features 2 Dell R7525 nodes with two AMD EPYC 7452 32-Core CPUs, two NVidia A100-PCIE-40GB GPUs, 128GB of DDR-4 RAM, one 1.8TB SAS SSD and one 900GB SATA SSD (reservable). The reservation of the Grouille nodes requires using the "exotic" OAR job type.

This cluster has been funded by CPER Cyber Entreprises.

-- Grid'5000 Team 17:00, March 15th 2021 (CET)

Rss.svgNew Jupyter Notebooks interface

We are pleased to announce that Grid'5000 now offers a web interface to run and edit notebooks on the testbed.

Available at https://intranet.grid5000.fr/notebooks/ , this interface allows users to start notebook applications on site's frontends or in OAR jobs.

Computational notebooks combine in a single file text, code cells, and the recorded outputs of the execution of the code.

They can be used to track the evolution of an experiment during the exploratory phase, by recording one thought process in the text cells and the experiments in the code cells. Or to create self-generating experiment reports where the general explanation is in the text and the precise data points are generated by the code in the output cells.

More info is available at Notebooks .
