Latfor DataGrid (LDG)
The International Lattice DataGrid (ILDG) was started with the aim of making gauge field configurations available to an international group of scientists using Grid technologies. Each configuration submitted to ILDG will consist of a set of meta-data and a set of binary files. The meta-data will be made available as XML documents which conform to the XML schema currently being developed by ILDG's meta-data working group. The meta-data will be searchable via the planned ILDG web interface. It contains an URI referring to the configurations that will be made available within a Grid-of-Grids.
The Latfor DataGrid (LDG) is the regional grid for continental Europe. The following institutions are operating the LDG services:
- DESY (Hamburg and Zeuthen, Germany)
- IN2P3 (Lyon, France)
- INFN (Parma, Italy)
- JSC (Jülich, Germany)
- RUG (Groningen, Netherlands)
- SARA (Amsterdam, Netherlands)
