Abstract

The paper presents an overview of the current research and achievements of the DEISA project, with a focus on the general concept of the infrastructure, the operational model, application projects and science communities, the DEISA Extreme Computing Initiative, user and application support, operations and technology, services, collaborations and interoperability, and the use of standards and policies. The paper concludes with a discussion about the long-term sustainability of the DEISA infrastructure.
