Abstract

The computing requirements of LHC experiments, as well as their computing models, are briefly presented. The origin of grid technology and its development in high energy community is outlined, including the Polish participation. The LHC Computing Grid project and its successor, the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid, are presented, including the summary of its successful operations in the first years of LHC data gathering. Against such a background, the creation and operation of the Polish Tier-2 is described, including examples of its use by the LHC experiments.
