Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow GridPP Documents GridPP Project Management Board Vision Statement From Web to Grid Building the next IT Revolution GridPP-PMB-01-Vision DOCUMENT IDENTIFIER: 07/05/2002 Date: Version: 1.0 Document status: FINAL Author Tony Doyle Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow GridPP Vision From Web to Grid Building the next IT Revolution Premise

The next IT revolution will be the Grid. The Grid is a practical solution to the data-intensive problems that must be overcome if the computing needs of many scientific communities and industry are to be fulfilled over the next decade. Aim The GridPP Collaboration aims to develop and deploy the largest-scale science Grid in the UK for use by the worldwide particle physics community. Many Challenges.. Shared distributed infrastructure For all experiments Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow GridPP Objectives 1. SCALE: GridPP will deliver the Grid software (middleware) and hardware infrastructure to enable the testing of a prototype of the Grid for the LHC of significant scale. 2. INTEGRATION: The GridPP project is designed to integrate with the existing Particle Physics programme within the UK, thus enabling early deployment and full testing of Grid technology

and efficient use of limited resources. 3. DISSEMINATION: The project will disseminate the GridPP deliverables in the multi-disciplinary escience environment and will seek to build collaborations with emerging non-PPARC Grid activities both nationally and internationally. 4. UK PHYSICS ANALYSES (LHC): The main aim is to provide a computing environment for the UK Particle Physics Community capable of meeting the challenges posed by the unprecedented data requirements of the LHC experiments. 5. UK PHYSICS ANALYSES (OTHER): The process of creating and testing the computing environment for the LHC will naturally provide for the needs of the current generation of highly data intensive Particle Physics experiments: these will provide a live test environment for GridPP research and development. 6. DATAGRID: Grid technology is the framework used to develop this capability: key components will be developed as part of the EU DataGrid project and elsewhere. 7. LCG: The collaboration builds on the strong computing traditions of the UK at CERN. The CERN working groups will make a major contribution to the LCG research and development programme. 8. INTEROPERABILITY: The proposal is also integrated with developments from elsewhere in order to ensure the development of a common set of principles, protocols and standards that can support a wide range of applications. 9. INFRASTRUCTURE: Provision is made for facilities at CERN (Tier-0), RAL (Tier-1) and use of up to four

Regional Centres (Tier-2). 10. OTHER FUNDING: These centres will provide a focus for dissemination to the academic and commercial sector and are expected to attract funds from elsewhere such that the full programme can be realised.

LCG Development Long Term Attachment at CERN This will enable Grid developments in the UK to be (more) fully integrated with long-term Grid development plans at CERN. The proposed mechanism is: 1. submit a short one-page outline of current and proposed work, noting how this work can best be developed within a named team at CERN, by e-mail to the GridPP Project Leader (Tony Doyle) and GridPP CERN Liaison (Tony Cass).

2. This case will be discussed at the following weekly GridPP PMB meeting and outcomes will be communicated as soon as possible by e-mail following that meeting. Notes 1. The minimum period for LTA is 3 months. It is expected that a work programme will be typically for 6 months (or more). 2. Prior DataGrid and LHC (or other) experiments' Grid work are normally expected. 3. It is worthwhile reading http://cern.ch/lcg/peb/applications in order to get an idea of the areas covered, and the emphasis placed, by the LCG project on specific areas (building upon DataGrid and LHC experiments' developments). 4. Please send all enquiries and proposals to: Tony Doyle and Tony CASS Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow Summary of LCG

7. LCG Project got under way early this year Launch workshop and early RTAGs give good input for high-level planning to be presented to LHCC in July New plan takes account of first beam in 2007 No serious problems foreseen in synchronising LCG plans with those of the experiments Collaboration with the many Grid projects needs more work Technical collaboration with the Regional Centres has to be established Recruitment of special staff going well (but need to keep the recruitment momentum going) Serious problem with materials funding Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow Building upon Success

6. DataGrid The most important criterion for establishing the status of this project was the European Commission review on March 1st 2002. The review report of project IST-2000-25182 DATAGRID is available from PPARC. The covering letter states As a general conclusion, the reviewers found that the overall performance of the project is good and in some areas beyond expectations. The reviewers state The deliverables due for the first review were in general of excellent quality, and all of them were available on time All deliverables are approved. The project is doing well, exceeding expectations in some areas, and coping successfully with the challenges due to its size. Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow 6.

GGF Within the Particle Physics community, these ideas are currently encapsulated in the Grid Laboratory Uniform Environment (GLUE).

Significant progress... Project is now well defined in a broad sense and is progressing on a series of fronts. We have responded and outlined our plans to address the concerns of the last OC concerning: 1. 2. 3. 4. WP5; Rollout plan; Monitoring instruments; Metrics for success. The project progress in:

has demonstrated 1. Widespread deployment of EDG testbeds in the UK; 2. Integration with specific experimental areas (BaBar, UKDMC and LISA); and 3. Demonstrating Grid deployment in the UK at the NeSC opening. We see various challenges ahead: 1. Development of more detailed metrics and monitoring of outputs; 2. Management of changes due to external developments (e.g. OGSA); 3. Development of Tier-2 deployment; 4. Engagement of the UK HEP community; and 5. Future funding initiatives such as Framework VI.
