Grid'5000 - United States

Grid’5000 is a scientific instrument for the study of large scale parallel and distributed systems. It aims at providing a highly reconfigurable, controllable and monitorable experimental platform to its users. Currently, Grid5000 operates 1195 physical hosts, for a total of 8184 cores across 10 sites.

In 2003, the Grid’5000 project was launched as a project of the French ACI Grid incentive.  

Grid’5000 has now reached its objective of exploiting the computational power of over 5,000 core processors to form the only research platform of its kind. There are 19* *laboratories involved in France with the objective of providing the community a testbed, allowing experiments in all the software layers between the network protocols up to the applications.

Today, the ALADDIN-G5K initiative has been put in place by INRIA to ensure the development and day to day support of the infrastructure.
