The Open Science Grid (OSG) is a DOE and NSF funded US
national distributed computing facility that supports
scientific computing via an open collaboration of science
researchers, software developers, and computing, storage and
network providers. The OSG Consortium is building and
operating the OSG facility, bringing resources and
researchers from universities and national laboratories
together and cooperating with other national and
international infrastructures to give scientists from a
diverse range of domains and disciplines effective access to
shared resources worldwide. The goals of the OSG are: to
support the use of and operate a secure, common, shared
production distributed facility providing thousands of
scientists with access to more than 100 computing and
storage sites; to distribute and support a robust, evolving
middleware stack for use on the OSG distributed facility
that is based on the Virtual Data Toolkit (VDT); education,
outreach and training activities to enable new participants
and communities in the use and support of grid
infrastructures; and usage and extensions to the OSG
middleware stack as well as grid-enabled applications driven
by the science needs of the stakeholders.
