Project description


Duration: October 2011 - February 2012

The Multi-disciplinary Distributed Computing (MUSIC) project aims at bringing together several Swiss higher education institutes by means of a shared high-performance computing platform called XtremWeb-CH (XWCH: utilized in the Virtual EZ Grid platform.
The project aims at: (1) simplifying use and reducing “operating costs” of the Virtual EZ Grid platform, (2) bringing new scientific communities to use Grid technology and, (3) improving the integration of the XWCH platform in the SMSCG platform (
The role of UNEP/GRID-Geneva is to "gridify" the application used to compute individual past hazardous events modeling in each cyclonic region for the period 1970 to 2009.
