As the grid computing efforts consolidated over the past years, the DutchGrid Platform
itself now limits its activities to providing the one core service which needs to be
project-neutral and provide national coverage: the provisioning of authentication and
identity assertions (certificates) to the Dutch grid computing community.
We recommend you visit the web sites of the projects and associations in the Netherlands
that support grid computing for more information, and will be glad to address your needs
for grid identity certificates for academic and research purposes.|
The site still hosts much of the original information that has helped the Netherlands to become a key centre for grid computing in the world. The existing links are not broken, but the information is likely out of date. Also, all scripted and interactive content has by now been disabled.
DutchGrid is the open platform for academic and research grid computing in the Netherlands
Established in 2000, its contributors have now been active in this area for many years. This success of grid computing has resulted in many projects and initiatives, that now form a comprehensive mesh of integrated efforts and initatives spanning a wide range of scientific collaborations. The major initiatives and projects today are listed below - the DutchGrid platform itself now focusses on grid identity certificates only.
This web site is supported by NIKHEF, the Dutch national institute for sub-atomic physics, and BiG Grid, the Dutch e-Science Grid. Comments to David Groep.
