Section: New Software and Platforms



Participants : Frédéric Desprez, Simon Delamare, Laurent Lefèvre, David Loup, Christian Perez, Marc Pinhède, Laurent Pouilloux.

The Grid'5000 experimental platform ( ) is a scientific instrument to support computer science research related to distributed systems, including parallel processing, high performance computing, cloud computing, operating systems, peer-to-peer systems and networks. It is distributed on 10 sites in France and Luxembourg, including Lyon. Grid'5000 is a unique platform as it offers to researchers many and varied hardware resources and a complete software stack to conduct complex experiments, ensure reproducibility and ease understanding of results.

Not only Grid'5000 is heavily used for Avalon research, but several team members are also involved in Grid'5000 direction:

Avalon also provides an important effort for Grid'5000 operation and development by hosting several enginneers belonging to Grid'5000 technical team (Marc Pinhède, David Loup) or HEMERA IPL (Laurent Pouilloux).
