ScotGRID is a £800k prototype two-site Tier 2 centre funded by SHEFC for the analysis of data primarily from the ATLAS and LHCb experiments at the Large Hadron Collider and from other experiments. The centre currently consists of a 128CPU Monte Carlo production facility run by the Glasgow PPE group and a 5TB datastore and associated high-performance server run by Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre.

We have formed a collaborative partnership with IBM to study the optimal configuration of the Monte Carlo production farm and the database server. The ScotGRID group is focussing on three areas of research and development
