Grid Computing has, over the past few years, matured sufficiently to make it a viable solution for real-world problems. However, there are many different toolkits today that allow to build a Grid environment. And while this wealth of different solutions may offer techniques applicable to the widest possible range of computational problems, their very… (More)
As the largest EU Grid project, it is one of the Enabling Grids for E-SciencE initiatives foremost goals to establish a production quality Grid infrastructure. Amongst EGEE's diverse duties the creation of a pan-European Grid training organisation plays a prominent role. Close to the end of the first project phase, this paper describes the training… (More)
This Paper describes how to set up an LCG-2.4 Training Box that comprises all the Grid Elements required for running a Grid site. The basic central services that are required for running a Grid are covered as well.
Two German High Performace Computing (HPC) centers (SCC & HLRS), as well as the Center for Interdisciplinary Risk and Innovation Studies (ZIRIUS) of the University of Stuttgart have jointly created a program to relay knowledge about simulations to students at secondary schools. Through this program they want to narrow the gap between visibility and… (More)
