Development of a GRID Computing Environment in Louisiana

Time 10/15/08 03:00PM-04:00PM

Session Abstract

In 2004 the Louisiana Board of Regents, the governing Board over all public higher education in Louisiana, began the development of a high speed network to support research and education within the State of Louisiana. Also included were the deployment of twelve supercomputing clusters ranging from .85 to 50 TFLOPs. This undertaking would become know as the Louisiana Optical Network Initiative or LONI.

This session will focus on the implementation and deployment of these supercomputing clusters and, in particular, the tremendous level of cooperation between many levels of State government and Higher Education which makes this endeavor possible.

Finally examples of present and future application use on the LONI clusters will be discussed.
