For these projects, particularly the CERN experiments whose members number in the thousands and whose data collections are expected to reach 100 Petabytes early in the next decade, the computing resources available through the iVDGL are expected to enable new classes of data-intensive algorithms that will lead to new scientific results.
Meanwhile, iVDGL will provide a global computing resource for several leading international experiments in physics and astronomy, including the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN, the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), and the proposed National Virtual Observatory (NVO).
The iVDGL is seen as a unique resource for scientific applications requiring access to Petabytes of data (1 Petabyte = 1 million Gigabytes) and beyond.
