Abstract

The National Fusion Collaboratory is building the Fusion Grid to enable national and global collaborative magnetic fusion research. The goal of the Fusion Grid is access by experimental facilities and multi-institution collaborations to simulation and modeling codes, data, and visualization, using Grid-based services. Experience has been gained through successful deployment of multiple services. This paper describes the infrastructure required to convert computational codes, scientific data collections, and visualization tools into Grid services, and the lessons learned in doing so.
