Abstract

The Polish Grid computing infrastructure was established during the PL-Grid project (2009–2012). The main purpose of this Project was to provide the Polish scientists with an IT basic platform, allowing them to conduct interdisciplinary research on a national scale, and giving them transparent access to international grid resources via international grid infrastructures. Currently, the infrastructure is maintained and extended within a follow-up PLGrid Plus project (2011–2014). Its main objective is to increase the potential of the Polish Science by providing necessary IT services for research teams in Poland, in line with European solutions. The paper presents several examples of the domain-specific computational environments, developed within the Project. For particular environments, specialized IT solutions are prepared, i.e. dedicated software implementation and infrastructure adaptation, suited for particular researchers groups’ demands.
