What is Grid Computing ?
Computational power and the storage of large data sets are now indispensable to advances in research,
diagnostics and treatment.

At Erasmus MC, full facilities for this are provided by two independent infrastructures:
the Erasmus Computing Grid and the Life Science Grid. Both are available to researchers and
physicianswho have high computational demands.


What is a Computing Grid?
A computing grid consists of interconnected computer systems or socalled computing nodes. In general, all computational resources in a grid can be used collectively. Such grids are often used for complex or very time-consuming calculations that lie beyond the scope of a
single desktop computer.

Start
For further information or to discuss your specific needs, please contact either the Erasmus Computing Grid or the Life Science Grid. Or visit the Erasmus MC grid webpage: www.erasmusmc.nl/grid

Security
The Erasmus Computing Grid and the Life Science Grid are monitored intensively in close cooperation with donor organizations
and the Erasmus MC security officer.

Storage
Research data, as stored on EDRA (Erasmus Digital Research Archive) or on any other (local) storage device, can be accessed by or transferred to the Erasmus Computing Grid or the Life Science Grid
