Getting compute time in other centres
- PRACE - Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe has a program to get access to the tier-0 infrastructure in Europe.
- The DOE leadership computing program INCITE also offers compute time to non-US-groups. It is more or less the equivalent of the PRACE tier-0 computing program. The annual deadline for proposals is usually end of June.
Training programs in other centres
- PRACE training programs
- HLRS, Stuttgart (Germany)
- Leibniz RechenZentrum, Garching, near München (Germany), organised together with the Erlangen Computing Centre.
- PRACE, Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe
- EGI - European Grid Initiative, the successor of the EGEE - Enabling Grids for E-SciencE program
- HET, HPC in Europe Taskforce, a project within ESFRI, European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures
- The e-IRG, e-Infrastructure Reflection Group
Some grid efforts
- WLCG - World-wide LHC Computing Grid, the compute grid supporting the Large Hedron Collider at Cern
- The XSEDE program in the US which combines a large spectrum of resources across the USA in a single virtual infrastructure
- The Open Science Grid (OSG) is a grid focused on high throughput computing in the US and one of the resource providers in the XSEDE project
Some HPC centres in Europe
- CÉCI - Consortium des Équipements de Calcul Intensif, the equivalent of the VSC run by the French Community of Belgium
- Danmark: The DeIC - Danish e-Infrastructure Cooperation is a virtual organisation just as the VSC in which several universities participate
