ALADDIN-G5K : ensuring the development of Grid'5000

for the 2008-2012 period

An infrastructure distributed in 9 sites around France, for research in large-scale parallel and distributed systems

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

Grid'5000 Spring School 2010 announced (online or offline Registrations now opened)

Organized in Lille, from April 6th to April 9th 2010, this spring school will bring together, but is not limited to, Grid'5000's users, technical team and executive committee for 4 days of tutorials and talks focusing on best-practices and results. Presentations and practical sessions will cover both basic usage of the platform, for new users, or potential users of Grid'5000 and advanced and new usage of the platform, for current users.

A challenge to showcase tools and environments demonstrating the deployment of distributed or Grid middleware on Grid'5000 will be held this year for the first time.

Research in Grids - Production Grids workshop held October 13th, 2009

L’Institut des Grilles (IdG) et l’action Aladdin INRIA lancent un appel commun à propositions pour dynamiser les recherches à l’interface entre la recherche sur les grilles, les grilles de recherche, et les grilles de production.

Le colloque présentera les questions ouvertes aux interfaces et les projets proposés dans le cadre de cet appel, afin de favoriser la création de nouveaux réseaux. Le but de la journée est de faire émerger des synergies. La présentation de travaux en cours est donc vivement encouragée. Plus d’informations. ---

Supercomputing and grid computing days at Lille

The first edition of the supercomputing and grid computing days at Lille will be held at Université de Lille1 and INRIA Lille - Nord Europe on December 2, 3 and 7, 2009. Half of the event is dedicated to the Grid5000 nation-wide grid infrastructure. A series of presentations including feedbacks on the use of Grid5000 is scheduled together with a one day practical training on it. The detailed program is available at: http://www2.lifl.fr/~melab/pmwiki/index.php?n=Main.Journ%e9esCIGIL

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


Grid'5000 allows experiments in all these software layers
  • Grid'5000 is a research effort developping a large scale nation wide infrastructure for large scale parallel and distributed computing research.
  • 17 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.

All sites in France are connected to 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 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.
