Virtual research collaboration's first international, interdisciplinary supercomputer grid established

Supercomputing Online, July 6, reports that virtual research collaboration can now move to a new level where real-world applications can be delivered on an international basis with the establishment of the Worldwide Universities Network (WUNgrid) which distributes computing power from five sites in three countries (US, UK and Norway).

At the heart of WUNgrid is a powerful data grid, known as the Storage Retrieval Broker, which allows data to be shared across heterogeneous environments.

WUNgrid will be open to other university members and will include in its grid distributed computing facities from the Far East and Pacific Rim.

There are a number of WUN Grid demonstrator projects underway:

  • Modelling Cities of the future

  • Seamless Access to Multiple Data sets

  • Recreating Medieval Gardens

  • Music Collaboratory

  • Managing information and knowledge

  • Bioinformatics

  • Medicine and Health
