Welcome to UABgrid

UABgrid is a technology platform being built to support research at UAB.

UABgrid provides a framework for sharing data, accessing compute power, and collaborating with peers on campus and around the globe. Our goal is to construct a dynamic network of services that supports the development and execution of advanced research processes.

The UABgrid pilot was launched in September 2007 and has since focused on demonstrating the utility of the platform in three key areas:

  • High Performance Computing (HPC) - combining clusters to power even the largest work loads
  • Data Sharing - supporting the trusted exchange of information to spark new ideas
  • Collaboration - putting the tools you need at your fingertips

The research platform is being built on the same technology foundation that has successfully served the needs of prominent national and international initiatives like caBIG, the Open Science Grid, TeraGrid, and the LHC Computing Grid.

Construction of the research platform is lead by UAB IT in cooperation with a growing list of collaborators that includes the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS), the Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC), the Department of Computer and Information Sciences, the School of Engineering, and Health System Information Services (HSIS). Platform development is conducted openly via the UABgrid development wiki.
