ALADDIN-G5K : ensuring the development of Grid'5000

for the 2008-2011 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 at a glance

Grid'5000 sites
  • Grid'5000 project aims at building a highly reconfigurable, controlable and monitorable experimental Grid platform gathering 9 sites geographically distributed in France featuring a total of 5000 processors:

Sites:

  • The main purpose of this platform is to serve as an experimental testbed for research in Grid Computing.
  • This project is one initiative of the French ACI Grid incentive (see below: Funding Institutions) which provides a large part of Grid'5000 funding on behalf of the French Ministry of Research & Education.


Grid'5000 will allow Grid experiments France wide in all these software layers
  • Grid'5000 is a research effort developping a large scale nation wide infrastructure for Grid research.
  • 17 laboratories are involved, nation wide, in the objective of providing the community of Grid researchers a testbed allowing experiments in all the software layers between the network protocols up to the applications.


The current plans are to assemble a physical platform featuring 9 local platform (at least one cluster per site), each with 100 to a thousand PCs, connected by the RENATER Education and Research Network.

All clusters will be connected to Renater with a 10Gb/s link (or at least 1 Gb/s, when 10Gb/s is not available yet).


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


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.
