National computer grid to include Hopkins

THE BALTIMORE SUN

The Johns Hopkins University will participate in a new national computer grid that will provide researchers with unprecedented computing speed and power.

The National Science Foundation said yesterday it would provide $11.9 million for the development of software for the planned $70 million Computational Grid for Physics Networks, or "GriPhyN."

GriPhyN will enable researchers at dozens of university "nodes" to share the computer power needed to store and manipulate the vast databases - some measured in quadrillions of bytes - being generated by work in physics and astronomy. An early client will be the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, in which Hopkins is a partner.
