GridPP is a collaboration of particle physicists and computer scientists from the UK and CERN. They have built a distributed computing grid across the UK for particle physicists. At the moment there is a working grid across 17 UK institutions, helping to process the data from the world's largest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider.
The UK Grid contributes the equivalent of almost 40,000 PCs to the worldwide LHC Computing Grid and the European Grid Infrastructure, both projects provide access to computing resources to over 20,000 researchers.Partners:
