SURAgrid is a consortium of organizations collaborating and combining resources to help bring grid technology to the level of seamless, shared infrastructure. The vision for SURAgrid is to orchestrate access to a rich set of distributed capabilities in order to meet diverse users' needs. Capabilities to be cultivated include locally contributed resources, project-specific tools and environments, highly specialized or HPC access, and gateways to national and international cyberinfrastructure.


SURAgrid goals:

  • To develop a scalable infrastructure that leverages local institutional identity and authorization while managing access to shared resources across institutional boundaries.
  • To promote the use of this infrastructure for the broad research and education community, creating a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
  • To provide a forum for participating institutions to gain additional experience with grid technology and to promote collaborative project development.

SURAgrid evolved from the NMI Testbed Grid, which was initiated as a sub-project of the NSF Middleware Initiative (NMI) Integration Testbed Program in September 2003. SURA developed and managed the NMI Integration Testbed Program for the first three years of the NMI, under NSF Cooperative Agreement ANI-0123937, in partnership with Internet2 and EDUCAUSE.
