Best paper award at GECCO'2011

Grid'5000 users get a Best Paper Award at ACM GECCO'2011. Congratulations to Malika Mehdi and Jean-Claude Charr for their paper "A Cooperative Tree-based Hybrid GA-B&B Approach for Solving Challenging Permutation-based Problems" co-authored with Nouredine Melab, El-Ghazali Talbi and Pascal Bouvry.


GPU day at Lille

A cluster with GPUs has been deployed in Lille since April 5th, 2011. A tutorial day in the context of Grid'5000 is therefore organized Tuesday June 28th, at INRIA Lille, to present Grid'5000 and to learn to use these new resources. Please refer to the details I you wish to participate.


SCCampLogo.png

Grid'5000 used as a learning platform during SC-Camp 2011

SC-Camp is an initiative of researchers to offer to undergraduate and master students state-of-the-art lectures and programming practical sessions upon High Performance and Distributed Computing topics. In 2010 the event was in Bucaramanga, Colombia. In 2011 the event will be hosted by Universidad de Costa Rica, Sede del Atlántico en Turrialba. SC-Camp is a non-profit event, composed by 7 days starting on July the 10th of 2011. Of those days 6 are dedicated to scientific lectures, practical programming sessions and a parallel programming contest.


Cheat Sheet mini.png

First Cheat sheet created

If you are of those who enjoy a recap of the different commands and links to the main help pages, you'll be pleased to see that an admin has contributed the first Grid'5000 cheat sheet to this wiki. If you wish to understand how it was built, you can read and suggest contributions in the corresponding bug.

Grid'5000 users get 2 out of 3 Best Poster award at IPDPS 2011

Congratulations go to Alexandra Carpen-Amarie ( IRISA, University Rennes 1, INRIA, Rennes, France) for her poster Towards a Self-Adaptive Data Management System for Cloud Environments and to Pierre Riteau (INRIA, IRISA, Rennes, France) for his poster Building Large Scale Dynamic Computing Infrastructures over Distributed Clouds

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.
