background
• National Laboratory on Scientific Computing - LNCC
• Research Institute of Min. Science & Technology – MCT
• Early involvement in a National Grid Proposal since 2002 with
the participation of RNP, HPC Centers, Univertisities and
Research Centers, and MCT funding agencies
• Involvement in Research Projects on Cyberenvironments
(Grids) and Applications since 2002
• Involvement in Multiple (8) related Grid projets in the
context of RNP Gigabit experimental network
• Assigned by MCT the Coordination of SINAPAD (National
HPC System)
• The SINAPAD legal framework is established in 2003

History of academic HPC in Brazil
• Brazil has a territorial extent of about 8.5 million
km2 and the federal constitutional order is similar
to the USA, with 26 states and a Federal
District around the national capital, Brasília.
• The history of academic HPC in Brazil begins in
1990, based on the concept of governmentfunded regional centers open to universities and
research institutes, with 7 such centers being
established between 1992 and 1997.

SINAPAD is...
• A network of operational high performance
computing centers (7), regionally distributed,
aimed at providing computation on demand to
education and scientific purposes.
• Objectives include
–
–
–
–
Foster the HPC culture along the country
Support development of products and applications
Transfer knowledge and technology
Include another 3 center in the nothern region

Remarks
• Will a single Grid - CA be sufficient for a
large country as Brazil ?
• More than a dozen Grid initiatives going on
and different application focus
• SINAPAD is currently operating a CA a
OpenCA version and testing compatibility
of ICP-EDU software with GRID Cas
• Recent paper on CTWatch quarterly february
