The Grid for UK Particle Physics

GridPP

http://www.gridpp.ac.uk/

We propose to deploy a Grid as the main mechanism for delivering very large scale computational resources to the UK Particle Physics community. We believe this foundation will underpin the success, and increase the discovery potential, of UK physicists. In order to do this we will need to establish a production quality Grid of unprecedented robustness, scale and functionality. We will ensure that sufficient hardware resources become available and that applications co-develop with the infrastructure, resulting in a Grid that is both accessible and inclusive. The proposal is fully integrated with international projects and we wish to seize the opportunity to capitalise on the UK leadership already established in several areas. The Grid will be directly connected to a large-scale e-Science Grid across Europe and will inter-operate with Grids in the United States.
