4. XtremWeb-HEP : XtremWeb for High Energy Physics

We are developing a new global computing platform, based on XtremWeb 1.8.0 : XtremWeb-HEP (XtremWeb for High Energy Physics).

This new platform :

  • introduces the notion of data;
  • extends application deployment by allowing end user applications one;
  • introduces the notion of project;
  • introduces the notion of “public” and “private” computing resources;
  • uses certificates;

This platform permits to continue our work on towards standardization and hopefully resources sharing with EGEE.
