GridPP is certainly not the only organisation in the world working with grid technology. Many other organisations exist in the vibrant grid ecosystem that GridPP either works with or belongs to. These include:
- The Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (wLCG)
- The wLCG has been implemented as a global computational grid for the analysis of data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, with the goal of integrating large, geographically distributed computing fabrics into a virtual computing environment.
- The European Grid Initiative (EGI)
- EGI is the European Union’s main Grid project. It brings together experts from 38 countries with the common aim of developing a Grid infrastructure for international science.
- CERN openalab
- The CERN openlab is a unique public-private partnership between CERN and leading ICT companies. Its mission is to accelerate the development of cutting-edge solutions to be used by the worldwide LHC community.
- The Globus project represents the work of organizations and individuals developing fundamental technologies behind the Grid, which lets people share computing power, databases, instruments, and other on-line tools securely across corporate, institutional, and geographic boundaries without sacrificing local autonomy.
