The Finish Grid Infrastructure (FGI) is a national distributed computing environment for Finland. It replaces the original national materials science grid (M-Grid) which was built in 2004. It is comprised of ten sites, nine of which are hosted by major Finnish Universities, and CSC – IT Center for Science, the administrative centre.
FGI is jointly funded by the Finnish Science Academy and the hosting sites. It boasts a total of about 154 TFlops in computing power (about 2/3 of this is due to GPGPU nodes), a total storage capacity of nearly 1 PB and uses the ARC grid middleware to connect the host centres. The FGI is available to all Finnish researchers for both local and grid use.
