The UCR Grid


About the UCR Grid

The UCR Grid is essentially a subset of the UC Grid. The collaborative cluster will be the first member of this grid. All cluster owners who participate in the other two cluster models will also be invited to take part in it as well.

Cluster owners may participate in the grid by adding a grid appliance node provided by Computing & Communications and making a certain number of cycles available to pool users of the grid.

Grid users will not only have access to resources on other clusters in the UCR Grid but will also have the ability to directly access clusters outside of the UCR Grid such as clusters that are on the TeraGrid.

Jobs are submitted to the UCR Grid through the UCR Grid Portal. Users of the portal will have access to several tools including the Data Manager service which gives users a single interface to handle data management across all the UCR grid clusters a user has access to.

UC Grid

The UC Grid and associated UC Grid portal is very similar to the UCR Grid, except that it gives users access to resources at UCLA, UCSB and UCI.
