The UCGrid: Computing across California
=======================================

by Bill Labate, Director of Research Computing Technologies, UCLA

followed by a Q & A 

A Grid is a collection of independently owned and administered 
resources which have been joined together by a software and hardware 
infrastructure that interacts with the resources and the users of the 
resources to provide coordinated dynamic resource sharing in a 
dependable and consistent way according to policies that have been 
agreed to by all parties. Because of the large number of resources 
available on a Grid at any given time, an individual researcher can 
always be provided with the best resources available at that point of 
time for his/her needs, and overall, resource utilization can be 
distributed for maximum efficiency. The UCLA Grid Portal Software 
(UGP) and the UCLA Grid Architecture bring computational clusters 
together into a Grid.

Bill will present an overview of the current UCGrid implementation
at UCLA, UCSB, UCSC, and UCI: its advantages and limitations. 


Questions & Discussion are encouraged, especially from faculty
interested in HPC applications.
