Italian Grid Infrastructures

  • Enzo Miccio
Conference paper


A Grid infrastructure is a set of standard network services and protocols upon a physical layer made by computational and storage resources, suitably organized in order to get these resources accessible and sharable. Here we give a brief description of computational infrastructures of the Italian Grid. We will start with a historical perspective, looking at present and future projects. We will then focus mainly with the production Grid intended for the upcoming start of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment at CERN.
