AlmereGrid Cloud Test Facility

 

The AlmereGrid Cloud test facility is  and experimental facility to test Grid and Cloud middleware, applications and operational models.

It consists of:

- BOINC based Desktop Grid for eScience

- XtremWeb based Desktop Grid

- OpenNebula Cloud

- As soon as Contrail software comes available, that will be installed. Currently ConPaaS is available.

 

AlmereGrid has years of experience in running experiments in Grid based distributed computing environments.

Some examples are:

- Testbed for distributed back-up and disaster recovery, as part of the BEinGRID project

- Design study for Build-on-Grid: a distributed system to allow citizens to build their own hous in virtual reality on top of a Grid

- Studies on different types of Desktop grid middleware, including Grid MP, Platform LSF Activecluster, BOINC, XtremWeb
