Grid'5000

Grid'5000 is a large-scale and versatile 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.

Key features:

  • provides access to a large amount of resources: 1000 nodes, 8000 cores, grouped in homogeneous clusters, and featuring various technologies: 10G Ethernet, Infiniband, GPUs, Xeon PHI
  • 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

Rss.svgLooking back at the first Grid'5000-FIT school

The first Grid’5000-FIT school was held in Sophia Antipolis, France from April 3rd to April 6th, 2018.

During three full days, more than 90 researchers (among them 30 PhD and 8 master students) studied jointly the two experimental research

infrastructures Grid’5000 and FIT.

In addition to high profile invited speakers and more focused presentations for testbeds users, the program included 30 hours of

parallel hands-on sessions. As such, introductory and advanced lab sessions on Grid’5000, FIT IoT-Lab, FIT CorteXlab and FIT R2lab were organized by the testbeds developers, each attracting dozens of attendants. See http://www.silecs.net/1st-grid5000-fit-school/program/ for more details on the presentations and on the hands-on sessions.

The last day, a hackathon involving several participating ad-hoc teams was organized. The hackathon aimed to use heterogeneous testbed

resources as a substrate for building an IoT application from collection of IoT-originating data to cloud-based dashboard.

This event is the first public milestone towards the SILECS project that aims at bringing together both infrastructures. See ...

Rss.svg1st Grid'5000-FIT school: call for participation

As previously announced, the first Grid'5000-FIT school will be held in

Sophia Antipolis, France from April 3rd to April 6th, 2018. This event is a first public milestone in the SILECS project, that aims at bringing together both infrastructures.

The program is now available, and includes a great set of invited talks, of

talks from Grid'5000 and FIT users, and tutorials on experimenting using those infrastructures.

Registration is free but mandatory. Please register!

Rss.svg1st Grid'5000-FIT school: save the date, call for presentations and practical sessions

It is our pleasure to announce the first Grid’5000-FIT school, that will be held in Sophia Antipolis, France from April 3rd to April 6th, 2018. This event is a first public milestone in the SILECS project, that aims at bringing together Grid'5000 and FIT infrastructures.

The program is being polished and will be available soon on http://www.silecs.net/1st-grid5000-fit-school/. The week of work will give priority to practical sessions where you will use the FIT and Grid’5000 platforms and learn how to conduct scientific and rigorous experiments. Moreover, to foster collaboration, we will arrange a special session where you can present your own work (see “call for presentations” below) or propose your own practical session (see “Call for practical session” below).

We would like to stress in this announcement that we hope users will consider presenting their great work during the school, including already published results. The focus of user presentations during the school is not so much on new results but on showcasing great uses of Grid’5000 and/or FIT platforms, singly or together, with a focus on how the results have been derived from the platforms usage.

Registration will be free but mandatory due to the limited number of seats.

Stay tuned for extra details on http://www.silecs.net/1st-grid5000-fit-school/.

Rss.svgDisk reservation feature available on chifflet and parasilo

The disk reservation feature is now available on chifflet in

Lille and parasilo in Rennes, in addition to grimoire in Nancy, which was already in beta testing phase. Disk reservation enables users to leave large datasets on nodes between experiments. See Disk reservation wiki page.
