Feature - Fusion of disciplines powers Russian grid infrastructure

Abstract:
Established in September 2003, development of RDIG, or the Russian Data Intensive Grid, was at first driven by the high energy physics community, which still remains the largest user of the RDIG infrastructure.

Four years on, demand for RDIG infrastructure is now coming from scientists in nanotechnology, computational chemistry, biology, earth sciences, business and more.

"The load on RRC KI computing resources was growing, but thanks to our work on the grid infrastructure we could involve the computing resources of other institutions, like the Skobeltsin Institute of Nuclear Physics at Moscow State University. As a result, we can solve our problems about 50 times faster."

"New application areas, like nanotechnologies, are center of attention for the RDIG consortium," he says.
