The NorduGrid architecture and tools
Summary, in English
tasks of the LHC experiments. While it is meant to be a rather generic Grid system, it puts emphasis
on batch processing suitable for problems encountered in High Energy Physics. The NorduGrid architecture
implementation uses the Globus ToolkitTM as the foundation for various components, developed by the project.
While introducing new services, the NorduGrid does not modify the Globus tools, such that the two can eventually
co-exist. The NorduGrid topology is decentralized, avoiding a single point of failure. The NorduGrid
architecture is thus a light-weight, non-invasive and dynamic one, while robust and scalable, capable of meeting
most challenging tasks of High Energy Physics.
