Open Science Grid receives $30 million award

Batavia, IL -- Scientists on the track to discovery got good news this month when a powerful computing tool received critical government funding. A five-year, $30 million award to the Open Science Grid Consortium, announced by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science, will operate and expand the Open Science Grid, a computing environment used by scientists to harness computing resources and scientific data from around the world.

"The ability to reliably share and analyze petabytes of data is critical to scientific discovery. This investment in sustaining and extending the Open Science Grid is an important component of the petascale science infrastructure," said Michael Strayer, director of the Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing program and associate director for Advanced Scientific Computing Research in DOE's Office of Science.

The OSG is built and operated by a unique partnership of universities, national laboratories, scientific collaborations and software developers that work together to create a common distributed computing environment, or grid, for scientific research. Computing resources from more than 50 sites in the United States, Asia and South America are shared through the OSG. These resources range from small clusters of ten computers to large facilities with thousands of processors and millions of gigabytes of data storage.

"The OSG has been operating since 2005 and has already had an impact on several areas of scientific research, from particle physics to biology," noted Joseph Dehmer, director of the NSF's Division of Physics. "The NSF has partnered with the DOE's Office of Science in support of the OSG's efforts to empower scientific communities by providing them with effective and dependable access to an unprecedented distributed computing facility."

Fifteen members of the OSG Consortium, including eleven U.S. universities and four national labora
