Architecture

UGP and the UCLA Grid Architecture bring computational clusters together into a Grid, The hardware resources making up the Grid consist entirely of computational clusters each of which consists of a head node, compute nodes, storage nodes, network resources, software, and data resources. Individual computational clusters can be quite large, containing hundreds of nodes. Local organizations own and maintain control of the resources involved, and local administrative procedures and security solutions take precedence.

The Architecuture implemented by UGP is hierarchical in that you can create a:

Features of the design include:

Servers

MyProxy Server
A MyProxy server is maintained as part of the UC Grid Portal. Having a MyProxy Server is recommended but not required for the campus grid portals.
