CamGrid: Experiences in constructing a university-wide, Condor-based grid at the University of Cambridge
In this article we describe recent work done in building a university-wide grid at the University of Cambridge based on the Condor middleware . Once the issues of stakeholder concerns (e.g. security policies) and technical problems (e.g. firewalls and private IP addresses) have been taken into account, a solution based on two separate Condor environments was decided on. The first of these is a single large pool administered centrally by the University Computing Service (UCS) and the second a federated service of flocked Condor pools belonging to various departments and run over a Virtual Private Network (VPN). We report on the current status of this ongoing work.
