GRNET S.A. was created in 1998 under the auspices of the Ministry of Development – General Secretariat of Research and Technology in order to provide high quality Internet services to the Greek research and academic community.
GRNET https://grnet.gr/en/company/, is a computing infrastructure provider with strong ties to research and academic communities. GRNET, through its offered cloud and HPC services, provides resources and support to scientists in various domains, including Earth Sciences, Life Sciences and Engineering. All these communities have similar requirements regarding advanced data analysis and scientific workflow design and execution. Such use-cases are targeted by the DARE hyper-platform and a successful outcome of the project will provide the necessary tools to significantly simplify their interaction with computing infrastructures and improve the quality and efficiency of scientific work.
The Greek Research and Technology Network (GRNET S.A. http://www.grnet.gr) is a state–owned company, operating under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Education – General Secretariat for Research and Technology. It is an integrated electronic Infrastructure provider whose mission is to support high–quality e-Infrastructure services to the academic, research and educational community of Greece; and link these with global e-Infrastructures; and to disseminate ICT to the general public. GRNET is the leading data infrastructure provider for the R&E community in Greece with over 11 Petabytes of raw disk storage and 7 Petabytes of tape archive. GRNET currently exploits multiple storage technologies, which include open-source projects (Ceph/Rados), in-house developed software (synnefo/archipelago), enterprise parallel file systems (IBM/GPFS) and enterprise Network Attached Storage boxes (EMC/Netapp). GRNET supports a number of communities in Greece and beyond. GRNET is one of the core data centers of EUDAT data infrastructure, and partner in the EUDAT2020 project, heavily involved in infrastructure operations. Regarding cloud computing, GRNET operates Infrastructure as a Service ~okeanos via large datacenters (84 racks, 1200+ servers, 10000 Virtual Machines active, 5 Petabytes of storage), and is/was involved in a number of core pan-European cloud projects. GRNET is also developing Synnefo, the cloud software for ~okeanos. GRNET is strongly involved in pan–European High-Performance Computing (HPC) Initiatives: it is a core member of PRACE project series and has coordinated HP–SEE project (High–Performance Computing Infrastructure for South East Europe’s Research Communities), which established the HPC infrastructure in South East Europe. GRNET is currently operating the Greek national HPC Tier–1 centre offering a 180 TFlops computing system, 1 TB of parallel file storage and respective application support services. GRNET coordinates the Greek National Grid Initiative – HellasGrid, which federates a number of Grid sites in the country. It is one of the core participants in EGI and the related EGI-Engage project, where it operates a number of pan-European core services; while in EGEE (Enabling Grids for E SciencE) projects series it also ran the Regional Operations Centre for South–East Europe. It has been involved in coordinating Grid activities in SEE (15 countries) for 6 years through a 3 phases of SEE–GRID projects. GRNET has been a core partner in EUMEDGRID, EUCHINAGRID, CHAIN and CHAIN-REDS projects, stimulating computing developments globally. Regarding policy issues in computing infrastructures, GRNET was represented as a partner in the eIRG-SP projects series and EGI-DS. The GRNET e-Infrastructure activities in different technological platforms discussed above are unified within the VI-SEEM project, where a consortium of 16 countries in South-East Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean come together in sharing and co-operating e-Infrastructure services and building a Virtual Research Environment for diverse scientific fields. Together with inclusive AAI and Persistent Data Identification services, the computing and storage platforms of GRNET form the backbone for the big data manipulations (archiving, mirroring, curation, computing, sharing) across the R&E and eGov spectrum. GRNET is also expected to be a partner in EOSC-Hub project responsible for a number of core services and tasks such as AAI & Monitoring. GRNET is also expected to offer its services to EGI fed cloud via open standards such as OCCI & CDMI and a number of EUDAT services such as B2HANDLE&B2SHARE via the combined Service Catalogue of EOSC-Hub. In addition GRNET together with the National Observatory of Athens, provide the infrastructure for the Greek node of the COPERNCUS Collaborative Ground Segment:
