Integration of geographically distributed heterogeneous resources based on the DIRAC Interware

The information on the workshop and the link to connect via Webex are available at Indico

The DIRAC Interware platform enables the integration of distributed heterogeneous computing resources and storage systems into a unified system. Since 2009, it has been developed as a versatile open-source tool. DIRAC comprises a set of services related to load and data management, a web interface, resource consumption accounting, authorization and authentication, workflow management and some others. Four interfaces, namely, a web interface, a command line interface, a Python programming interface and a REST interface, are provided to users.
At present, the DIRAC-based unified environment, which includes both computing resources and data storage systems, is used to generate and reconstruct events of the MPD experiment, to study the SARS-CoV-2 virus within the Folding@Home project on available cloud resources and to integrate clouds of the JINR Member States’ organizations into a distributed platform.
The talk will cover the major aspects of using DIRAC to start jobs and interact with data.
