Open Science Grid (OSG) is a federation of compute and storage resources provided by of dozens of virtual organizations. This project will collaboration between the NIMBUS team and OSG integration and test the deployment of VM based applications in OSG environments.

Intellectual Merit

OSG has intellectual merit in its leadership in the practical application of high-throughput computing. OSG serves as the common point for software providers (such as Condor or glideinWMS) to see their middleware in production. OSG serves as a pool of expertise for developing and deploying future production-quality high-throughput applications.

Broader Impacts

OSG has broader impact in that it represents an important part of the computing landscape, in which it is important for us the US to keep presence. OSG believes other communities will become more and more dependent on these methods.
