Dr. Ruediger Berlich - Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

Distributed evolutionary algorithms with the Geneva library

2008 sees the start-up of the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva/Switzerland. In response to the unprecedented amount of data being produced by the LHC detectors, the Enabling Grids for e-Science initiative has created a world-wide computing infrastructure, allowing several thousand physicists to simultaneously access the currently 60000 cores of the Grid, almost all of which are running Linux.

The presentation introduces the topic of Grid Computing and discusses EGEE's Grid infrastructure for the Large Hadron Collider. Aspects of Cloud computing are compared with the Grid in order to identify areas where both compete, and where they complement each other.
