HP Builds Platform Demonstrating ChinaGrid Project

Hewlett-Packard & Co. said Monday it has completed a display wall and visualization platform that demonstrates its role in ChinaGrid, the largest computing project in the world.

Hewlett-Packard & Co. said Monday it has completed a display wall and visualization platform that demonstrates its role in ChinaGrid, the largest computing project in the world.

A team of researchers from HP Labs in Beijing and Chinese universities are developing monitoring, measurement, security, and visualization devices for ChinaGrid. The team recently completed an advanced display wall and visualization system that showcases the ChinaGrid monitoring system.

The demonstration was built with HP servers, display monitors, and projectors. It runs visualization software developed at Tsinghua University.

The grid initiative runs under China Ministry of Education. It has been deployed at 20 schools. On completion, the project will extend IT resources and services to thousands of researchers and more than 290 million students in the country’s universities. The project has 15-teraflops of computing power, mostly built with HP ProLiant and HP Integrity servers.

Grid computing involves pooling resources and computing power from dozens, sometimes hundreds or thousands, of servers over a network. "The grid project will power video imaging and remote learning tools for students," said Sara Murphy, program manager in the High Performance Computing Division at HP. "The ChinaGrid support platform is based on OGSA standards being developed in the global grid forum, according to the latest Web Services resource framework specification within the OASIS standards body."

HP Labs researchers also are working on software that can plug into the grid system to enhance security. The team is developing an active feedback system as a service, with a platform based on HP OpenView Radia software and service-oriented architecture (SOA).
