Open Science Grid: Building and Sustaining General Cyberinfrastructure Using a Collaborative Approach is a paper discussing the creation and operation of the Open Science Grid.

Published in June in First Monday, it covers:

  • An introduction to Open Science Grid
  • Practical lessons learned from operating a large cyberinfrastructure
  • Scalability, scalability, scalability
  • Challenges faced by Open Science Grid

“OSG’s experience broadly illustrates the breadth and scale of effort that a diverse, evolving collaboration must undertake in building and sustaining large–scale cyberinfrastructure serving multiple communities,” writes author Paul Avery, a professor at the University of Florida and resource manager for Open Science Grid.

“Scalability—in resource size, number of member organizations and application diversity—remains a central concern,” he continues. “As a result, many interesting challenges continue to emerge and their resolution requires engaged partners and creative adjustments.”
