AliEn ALICE jobs on the Nimbus Cloud

Jul 30, 2008

In collaboration with Artem Harutyunyan and Predrag Buncic, AliEn based images are launching on Nimbus in support of the ALICE experiment to carry out simulation, reconstruction and distributed analysis of physics data. After one VM makes site services available, AliEn Job Agents can launch and retrieve jobs from the main task queue to execute.

See this screenshot of the incorporation! Nimbus is the ‘Cloud’ site in Chicago. See this screenshot for a bird’s eye view of the whole operation.
