Grid Computing

Welcome to the World of Grid Computing!

The University of Notre Dame is a member of Open Science Grid (OSG). The CRC provides computational and storage resources for utilization by our grid community partners. In return our partners provide access to their resources at a varying level of priorities.

If you are a high job volume/throughput user please consider undertaking the following steps to utilize resources on the NWICG and OSG grids. You will have priority over other partner grid users to access those resources at Notre Dame. You will enter the larger queue of grid users to access resources at partner institutions as they become available.

In addition, Notre Dame maintains an active Condor pool. Condor is a system that harnesses the idle computational cycles of servers and workstations across campus and around the world. Using Condor, you can access about 700 CPUs at Notre Dame, and another 20,000 cores at Purdue. The Condor pool is growing on a daily basis, and new contributors are always welcome.
