Ruder Boskovic Institute - RBI
Ruder Boskovic Institute (RBI) is an interdisciplinary institute primarily oriented towards the field of natural an technical sciences, founded in 1950. It consists of 12 divisions: Electronics, Center of Informatics and Computing, Theoretical Physics, Experimental Physics, Experimental Physics, Materials Physics, Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry, Materials Chemistry, Molecular Genetics, Molecular Medicine, Laser and Atomic Research, Environmental and Marine Research. The involvement in Grid computing in the Institute primarily started driven by the needs of the scientists. The division of Electronics and Center of Informatics and Computing of IRB main long-term research programme is focused on process modeling by intelligent computer systems. RBI, in addition to a range of experimental computer and computer interconnected equipment (including computer clusters, NMR and other data collection and processing equipment, connected and being connected in a CRO GRID) has a lot of experience in all aspects of computer science and electronics, including design and development of optical communications (fiber and free space), microelectronic and laser equipment, Virtual Machine development and implementation, data mining and practical experience in system design and industrial control etc.
As a center of excellence, IRB is involved in several GRID related projects in the areas of metacomputing technology, distributed computing test bed (3C), high-speed computing, high throughput computing, virtual laboratory (teleimmersion), e-science centre, data mining etc.
 CVs of key persons
RBI can provide Grid resources of several levels of complexity. Our GRID orientation is presently intended and used for scientific cluster computing and in the future with scientific instruments in the grid (e.g. NMR, electronic microscopy), scientific databases, distributed data acquisition (e.g. Marine ecology) and scientific visualization. RBI internal networks are Gb optical Ethernet as a dynamic reconfigurable network with predictable communication (latency, bandwidth, jitter), 100 Mb atmospheric laser link, 10 Mb microwave links, and connections with Internet over 1 Gbps optical and ATM 155/622 through CARNET to GEANT. Presently the clusters in the Campus GRID attain around 180 GHz Linux PC processing power (heavily used). The testbed research includes metacomputing technology, distributed computing test bed, high-speed computing, high throughput computing, virtual laboratory e-science center tendency etc. The CRO GRID, whose part RBI is, provides grid computing throughout the research and educational network in Croatia, and is intended to be OGSA compliant.
