 Feature - Malaysia’s grid grows in power

Malaysia’s grid computing system, comprising several thousand CPUs at Mimos Bhd’s Technology Park Malaysia headquarters, has been successfully linked to the Enabling Grids for E-SciencE (EGEE).

Mimos, an applied research organization, said its KnowledgeGrid Malaysia gained a substantial increase in computing power from the link-up, allowing Malaysian researchers  to collaborate more efficiently and easily with counterparts outside the country.

KnowledgeGrid went through a three-month vetting process with EGEE to assess its performance and security qualities recently. “It had to meet several requirements, such as data fidelity, before it got the green light to join the European network,” said Ng Kwang Ming, Mimos senior manager for grid computing. “It is not a one-off process. EGEE will constantly reassess the performance quality of KnowledgeGrid to ensure that it is on par with the European grid,” Ng said.
