Who Uses EGEE

Generally, the EGEE Grid infrastructure is ideal for any scientific research especially where the time and resources needed for running the applications are considered impractical when using traditional IT infrastructures. The EGEE Grid consists of  41,000 CPU available to users 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in addition to more than 5 Petabytes (5 million Gigabytes) of storage, and maintains 100,000 concurrent jobs.

Having such resources available changes the way scientific research takes place. End use depends on the users' needs: large storage capacity, the bandwidth that the infrastructure provides, or the sheer computing power available.

The first applications to use the EGEE Grid infrastructure were from the fields of High Energy Physics (HEP) and Biomedicine, but EGEE now also supports applications from many other scientific domains, such as Astrophysics, Computational Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Finance, Fusion, Geophysics, Multimedia. In addition, there are several applications from the industrial sector running on the EGEE Grid, such as applications from geophysics and the plastics industry.

At present there are about 20 applications from more than 10 domains on the EGEE Grid infrastructure

  • Astronomy & Astrophysics - MAGIC,
  • Computational Chemistry
  • Earth Sciences - Earth Observation, Solid Earth Physics, Hydrology, Climate
  • Fusion
  • High Energy Physics - 4 LHC experiments (ALICE, , CMS, LHCb) BaBar, CDF, DØ, ZEUS
  • Life Sciences - Bioinformatics (Drug Discovery, GPS@, Xmipp_MLrefine, etc.)
  • Condensed Matter Physics
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Computer Science/Tools
  • Civil Protection
  • Finance (through the Industry Task Force)
