Grid-Ireland closure on 31 December 2012
As a result of a funding decision in mid-2011, the Grid-Ireland Operations Centre at TCD cannot be sustained beyond the end of 2012.
We would like to thank all of our users, site administrators, supporters and staff for contributing to Grid-Ireland's successes over the years.
Grid-Ireland involvement in the LHC: The Grid-Ireland Operations Centre is involved in data storage and processing for the Atlas and LHCb experiments.

The aim of Grid-Ireland is to enable communities of users, for example, astrophysicists, geneticists or linguists, to construct virtual organizations above Grid-Ireland. The guiding principle is that there may be many virtual organizations, but there only needs to be one grid layer. The benefit is a research platform for scientists and an object of research for computer scientists, and a natural symbiosis between the two.
The Grid-Ireland Operations Centre is a partner in the e-INIS project to develop a national e-Infrastructure for Ireland. e-INIS is funded by HEA under PRTLI cycle 4 as part of the National Development Plan and with support from EU structural funds.
The Grid-Ireland Operations Centre participates in:
- e-INIS, the Irish National e-Infrastructure
- EGI, the European Grid Infrastructure
- EMI, the European Middleware Initiative
- StratusLab, with the aim of enhancing grid infrastructures with virtualization and cloud technologies
- HELIO, the Heliophysics Integrated Observatory
- Mantychore, IP Networks as a Service
- SCI-BUS Scientific gateway-based user support
- ER-Flow, Scientific workflows
- firstname.lastname@example.org: for all help requests
