eMammoth - Compute and Store on Grids and Clouds infrastructures


eMammoth - Compute and Store on Grids and Clouds infrastructures

Duration: 36 months (2011 - 2013)

Start: 1/12/2010

Project Website: http://www.cs.ucy.ac.cy/grid/eMammoth/

Principal Investigator: Μάριος Δικαιάκος

Main Funding Source: Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation

Total Cost: 95,200

A number of large-scale grid and cloud infrastructures are currently in operation around the world, federating an impressive collection of computational resources and a wide variety of application software. One of the main goals of these infrastructures is to make their software resources and services easily accessible and attractive for end-users. To achieve this goal these distributed infrastructures need to facilitate the need for high computational power and storage capacity.

The implementation of the proposed project will provide a number of key benefits:

a) extension of an existing hpc infrastructure with a high-performance storage facility, capable of supporting data-intensive computing;

b) exploitation of the planned data-intensive computing facility in a variety of cutting-edge research activities with significant scientific potential: search computing and information retrieval, analysis of large-scale ad-hoc network topologies, and storage and processing of biosignals;

c) operation of and experimentation with a cloud storage service, open to the cyprus research community.
