The European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) links more than 18,000 researchers (and counting) to the distributed computing electronic resources (computing and storage) they need for their work. From huge international collaborations to small independent labs, scientists are accessing the software, services and tools EGI provides through a network of 350 resource centres across Europe (and beyond).
The scientific applications of grid computing are boundless and cover all disciplines from the humanities to high energy and nuclear physics.
Just think about what 240,000 computing cores and more than 100 petabytes of storage could do for your project.
Consider how much time and energy you would save if you could run your software applications on hundreds of computer cores at a time, instead of waiting for hours for one single result on your laptop.
