Grid'5000 school 2012 announced
Organized in Nantes, from December 3rd to December 6th 2012, this winter 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.
Inria award for research and innovation support given to David Margery, Grid'5000 chief technical officer
The 2012 Inria award for research and innovation was awarded to David Margery, who has been the Grid'5000 chief technical officer since 2007. more info here
Report on Support for Experimental Computer Science workshop available
Following the Supercomputing 2011 Workshop on Support for Experimental Science, a report was released, which distills the discussion from that workshop into a consensus on the state of the field and directions for moving forward. Full report available; featured on isgtw.org and hpcwire.
Grid'5000 users finalists of the SCALE'2012 challenge
The following paper took part in the final of the international SCALE'2012 challenge: L. Sarzyniec, S. Badia, E. Jeanvoine, L. Nussbaum Scalability Testing of the Kadeploy Cluster Deployment System usingVirtual Machines on Grid'5000 (CCGRID/SCALE’2012, Ottawa, Canada, May 2012). (see paper on HAL)
The paper presents a large-scale execution of Kadeploy on Grid'5000, using up to 4000 virtual machines hosted on 635 nodes from four sites, gathered together in a global KaVLAN network. The work was done in the context of the INRIA ADT Kadeploy project.
Announcing the IaaS on Grid'5000 Workshop - 2012 to be held in Rennes, April 23rd 2012
Grid'5000 users are invited to take part to a half day workshop in Rennes on April 23rd, 2012, followed by an optional 2 days coding camp for all Grid'5000 users working on the deployment of open source Iaas stacks (OpenNebula, Nimbus, OpenStack, ..). During the coding camp on the following days, participants will be able to start collaborating on consolidating their tools. Details on the event's page
Using Grid'5000 for on-demand extension of an OpenNebula installation
This video shows how the BonFIRE project's testbed operated in Rennes can be extended on-demand over Grid'5000 resources. This is a powerfull demonstration of KaVLAN usage and of how Grid'5000 capabilities can be exposed to specific users with the Grid'5000 API. Here Grid'5000 resources are dynamically added to an OpenNebula installation.
Grid'5000 at a glance
- 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.
- 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.
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.
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.
As from June 2008, INRIA is the main contributor to Grid'5000 funding.
