Grid Showcase Demonstrations ECOGRID; Real Time Observational Multiple Data Streaming and Machine Learning for Environmental Research using Lightpath – Chinese Taipei There are many extensive uses of surveillance video camera and high fidelity audio facility for scientific research nowadays. For example, the HPWREN (High Performance Wireless Research and Education Network) and ROADNet use a high-resolution video camera for biological and ecological research as well as for surveillance watch for forest fires and for on board operation in oceanographic ships etc. Ecogrid uses different sensors, e.g. video cameras, to monitor coral reef ecosystems and long-term behavior of wild life. The employment of the grid method in the later two systems enables a more scalable and automatic integration, which can be regarded as an open layered pipeline. The sensors are responsible for collecting raw images at the front end, IP protocol pushed as close to the sensors as possible, grid-oriented middleware used for distributed computer and storage resources and finally data analyzed, synthesized and archived for scientific discovery at the back end. In this presentation we will explain the technology developed for real time data streaming. One of examples will be giving a live demo with images streamed directly from high-resolution underwater monitoring camera in coral reef reserve of Kenting, Chinese Taipei to the venue. Stereo image streaming is also demonstrated as an approach of NCHC towards machine learning. Recently CANARIE in Canada, CRC in Canada, KISTI in Korea, NCHC in Chinese Taipei and i2CAT in Spain today collaborated on a demonstration of a single end user controlling the setup of over 40,000 kilometers of lightpaths from Chinese Taipei, Korea, Canada and Spain to enable multiple HDTV video streams in between. The lightpath of TWAREN of NCHC will be able to provide combined bandwidths for the X-Pacific links up to 4.5G.b/s between Chinese Taipei and the US. The proposed showcase of the application will take the advantage of the previous successful experience. K*Grid Project - Korea K*Grid Cyberinfrastructure: Nation-wide Grid infrastructures have been built in Korea with three high-performance computing resource providers: KISTI, SNU and PNU. Web-based Grid service portals have been developed, and this demo will demonstrate the integration of Grid workspace service, Grid monitoring service and Grid accounting service. K*Grid Middleware: KMI-R1(K*Grid Middleware Initiative - Release 1) is an integrated Grid middleware package developed in the K*Grid project. This demo will show how each middleware component works together on the whole architecture of KMI-R1. A couple of bio applications will be shown through the demo portal upon the testbed built with KMI-R1. Grid Applications on K*Grid: In this Grid-based online game demo, the turn-method game demo will show supporting two users and how the load balancing is executed on the number of users using MoreDream middleware. In the Grid-based telematics demo, telematics service supporting 3D contents, and aload balancing simulation for the number of users will be shown. GridASP: Business Framework for Utility Computing – AIST, Japan AIST (Advanced Industrial Science & Technology) has been developing the Grid ASP framework which realizes gird-enabled Applications Services Providers (ASP) so as to realize Grid Utility Computing. GridASP can bind Application Providers (AP), Resource Providers (RP), and Service Providers (SP) all together. RP manages resources and executes jobs requested by users. AP manages application packages and licenses. SP manages Web portal for technical applications and mediates users and RP. By federating three independent providers, GridASP provides application execution services with security and anonymousness to enterprise/scientific users. We will demonstrate how the GridASP works. Animation Rendering on a Grid - Singapore The demonstration will show how a computational grid is exploited to undertake animation rendering of frames by a digital media company or an independent animator. A rendering job may be submitted to the National Grid Pilot Platform (NGPP) through a Web browser interface, animation software or command line. Upon job submission, the NGPP meta- scheduler will schedule the job to be rendered on one or more computer resources that meets the requirements of the job, such as in terms of CPU load. After job submission, the user can check the status of the job using the meta-scheduler or through Ganglia. The job status will be reflected on both the meta-scheduler as well as Ganglia. Upon job completion, the user retrieves the job output from the submission host. The Multi-Organization Grid Accounting System (MOGAS) has been developed to meter, track and bill for usage of resources on a heterogeneous Grid. MOGAS is part of the common stack on NGPP and has been adopted by several sites on the PRAGMA test-bed. Our demonstration showcases how the NGPP handles/uses: a) Sharing of animation rendering software licenses (mental ray); b) Meta-Scheduler for job submission & scheduling; and c) Multi-Organization Grid Accounting System (MOGAS) for resource accounting. Malaria TV – Lab of Collaborative Diagnostics, University of Toronto, Canada Malaria TV will demonstrate how commodity technology running over Internet enables diagnostic collaboration. Essentially Malaria TV is a critical component of a distributed diagnostic capability. Malaria TV will assist global efforts to roll back malaria. Virtual Machine Turntable, Nortel – Canada The “VM Turntable” demonstrator pioneers the integration ("mashup") of Virtual Machine (VM) resources and application-controlled, dynamic “lightpath” network services across the WAN. The results hint to a new stage of virtualization—one for which running computation is no longer localized within a data center but rather can be migrated across geographical distances, with negligible downtime, transparently to running applications and external clients. A noteworthy data point indicates that a live VM can be migrated across the Pacific with just 1 to 2 seconds of application downtime. In Calgary, the “VM Turntable” demonstrator will be challenged over lightpaths that exhibit vastly different round-trip-times. User Controlled Lightpath Provisioning (UCLPv2) - Canada Version 2 of the User Controlled Lightpath Provisioning (UCLP) System (http://uclp.ca), which is currently being developed by CRC and its partners under CANARIE’s Directed Research Program, will be demonstrated as part of the Grid Showcase. The UCLPv2 System will be used to demonstrate how network resources can be controlled and managed to configure Articulated Private Networks (APNs) which can in turn be assigned to different organizations associated with various communities of users. The users can then start or stop the APNs as they are needed to bring their community of users together by establishing a collaborative work environment over advanced hi-speed networks such as Canada’s CA*net 4 without having to involve network operators as in the traditional practice with long provisioning times. The purpose of the demonstration is to show that end users can use the UCLPv2 System to have complete control over their own private network and can quickly setup connections to remote sites as they are needed depending on their community requirements. The intent is to successively start and stop at least three APNs to establish connectivity within Canada and internationally to Korea and Chinese Taipei. Two-way streaming of HD video to enable high- quality video conferencing and other advanced broadband applications will be carried over the APNs. MusicGrid, Communications Research Centre, Canada MusicGrid’s demonstrations will feature visitations to music classrooms in St John’s Newfoundland and Kangiqsualujjuaq Quebec. Music students and teachers at both schools are active participants within the MusicGrid2 program. MusicGrid pioneered broadband music E- learning and received its start through a CANARIE funded e-learning program. Canadian students and teachers, cultural institutions, industry, universities and international partners shared knowledge, best practice, culture, and passion for music using broadband visual communication tools, including videoconference and videoservers. MusicGrid extended the reach of and uses of broadband by linking fibre-optic, satellite and international broadband networks, by interoperation of heterogeneous videoconference platforms, and by development of new asynchronous broadband visual communication tools. Over 150 scheduled broadband videoconference learning sessions were carried out; most sessions involved 3 or more sites, and lasted 1 or more hours. The MusicGrid PrivateVideo Server hosted over 500 videos; 2500 distinct viewings occurred during the project. Musicgrid’s success is demonstrated through it having achieved sustainability without external funding. It continues to expand its activities, research agenda and membership within Canadian and international music and education communities. MusicGrid partners include: Memorial University, CANARIE, National Research Council, Telesat, National Arts Centre, Carleton University, Faculty of Music University of Ottawa, McGill University, Ottawa Carleton District School Board, Ecole Ulluriaq- Kangiqsualujjuaq Quebec, Iqaluit Middle School Nunavut, Eastern School District, St Johns NF, La commission scolaire au Coeur-des-Vallées Quebec, Edmonton Public School Board, Virtuosi-Centre Expertise in Chamber Music-Finland, Manhattan School of Music-USA, Faculty of Music Indiana University, Yamaha Canada, Agora Systems-Spain. Satellite Broadband Ka-Band Service – Telesat Canada/Infosat Communications The demonstration will feature a live Ka-band satellite connection to the Internet as well as a display of outdoor and indoor electronics typically installed at a customer location anywhere in Canada. The actual service being demonstrated is Infosat’s High Speed Enterprise (HSe™) broadband Internet Service, which accesses Telesat’s Anik F2 satellite at Ka-band. HSe broadband Internet service is targeted to users anywhere in Canada where high speed Internet services are not available. This service is an enterprise grade, high speed Internet connection via satellite that eliminates the two biggest problems facing dial-up Internet users across Canada – accessibility and connection speed. HSe service provides “always on”, 2 way Internet services at speeds up to 2.0 Mb on the download and 500 Kb on the upload, and requires no phone line. The HSe terminal provides public Internet routable addresses via a standard Ethernet port enabling multiple computers to be connected directly to the Internet. The service uses a 67 cm diameter mini-dish connected to the indoor satellite modem unit through two RG-6 cables. No external AC power is required. The satellite modem connects to a PC or LAN router through RJ45 cable. Satellite Ka-band Internet service is an affordable high-speed Internet service with the advantage of being available anywhere within the satellite’s footprint. Costs for this service are typically limited to a one-time fee for the equipment and professional installation, and a low monthly service fee for High Speed Internet Access via satellite.
