1 Million CPU hours provided for volunteer Desktop Grids from HPC centers

In June 2012, the HPC centers of Desktop Grid Virtual Organisation (managed by the DEGISCO project) provided more than 1 Million normalized CPU hours for the supported volunter Desktop Grids in the last month.

It was the first time when the e-Infrastructure reached this outstanding 1 Million CPU-hour level per month by utilizing the spare capacities of HPC clusters running gLite grid middleware. The new fault-tolerant, high-throughput, and geographically distributed 3G Bridge deployment (in Budapest by MTA SZTAKI, in Moscow by ISA-RAS, and in Taipei by ASGC) allowed us to gather 272,883 workunits from 10 different volunteer projects involving (among others) CAS@home, Ibercivis, Slinca@home, SAT@home and SZTAKI Desktop Grid. The workunits have been bridged to the Desktop Grid VO resources, and after their execution the results have been successfully transferred back to their sources; to the scientific users communities.

We would like to thank all the supporters from Grid centers for their help and assistance; especially from UPM/Biruni Grid (Malaysia), INGRID (Portugal), GRIF (France), IPB (Serbia), and SZTAKI (Hungary).

Disclaimer Disclaimer

The International Desktop Grid Federation (IDGF) is set up to be long-lived.

At present, the IDGF organisation is working hard to getting into shape the permanent framework for the organisation structure.

In future IDGF will have paid membership fee for some categories and paid services because IDGF aims to attract active members that really benefit from the services.

IDGF will advise all existing members in advance when shifting from free to paid membership.
