In this presentation, the main aspects related to distributed computing that a HEP experiment has to address are discussed. This is done analyzing what the current experiments, mainly at the CERN LHC, are using, either provided by Gird infrastructures or developed by themselves. After a brief introduction on the overall distributed computing architecture, the specific aspects that are treated...

After the end of the EGEE series of projects, the way improvements to the middleware are developed and deployed will change significantly, with a stronger focus on stability of the infrastructure and on quality assurance. The middleware will evolve according to the requirements coming from users in terms of reliability, usability, functionality, interoperability, security, management,...

The talk will be focused on the support for parallel programs, mpi and multithread, in EGEE, that is actually the Grid infrastructure of which InfnGrid is member of. I’ll review the status of the support of MPI and the usage of the upcoming new syntax through the analysis of a Case Study.

The presentation will first describe what the main current evolution trends for distributed computing seem to be, moving then on to explore how computing resources could be uniformly accessed via either grid or cloud interfaces using virtualization technologies. The integration of grids and clouds can on the one hand expand and optimize the use of available computing resources, while on the...
