Building and Testing a Production Quality Grid Software Distribution for Open Science Grid

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors describe how the authors integrate, build, and test the Open Science Grid (OSG) software stack, which is used to provide a production quality infrastructure for grid sites and users across OSG to run their grid jobs. The software stack is sufficiently complex that building and testing the software stack is non-trivial and requires a variety of types of testing including internal integration testing as well as end-user testing. The Open Science Grid (OSG) is a national, distributed computing grid for data-intensive research. It brings together resources from campuses and research communities around the nation and the world into a common, shared grid infrastructure via a common set of software.
