The Austrian Grid Initiative.

The Austrian Grid is a nationwide initiative to establish Grid computing in Austria. It combines Austria's leading researchers in advanced computing technologies with well-recognized partners in grid-dependant application areas. The project was funded by the Austrian Ministry of Science and Research from 2004 to 2010 and is currently restructuring into a National Grid Initiative (NGI), taking into account the national user community as well as the requirements arising out of international cooperation in the context of the European Grid Initiative (EGI).

Mission

  • development and usage of grid computing infrastructures for diverse application areas, and
  • installation and operation of a national grid infrastructure in Austria.
  • fundamental research in the area of grid computing middlewares
  • evaluation of grids through the development of state-of-the art grid applications

Organisational Structure

  • Austrian Grid Service centre, which is to offer a sustainable grid infrastructure beyond the official funding period
  • Austrian Grid Development centre, which aims at getting the industry on board, i.e. arranging grid research projects between industrial and research partners.
  • Austrian Grid Research centre, which conducts basic research in Grids, develops prototypes and supports researchers who use Grid technology for their projects
