The Grid'5000 experimental platform (http://www.grid5000.fr ) is a scientific instrument to support computer science research related to distributed systems, including parallel processing, high performance computing, cloud computing, operating systems, peer-to-peer systems and networks. It is distributed on 10 sites in France and Luxembourg, including Lyon. Grid'5000 is a unique platform as it offers to researchers many and varied hardware resources and a complete software stack to conduct complex experiments, ensure reproducibility and ease understanding of results.

Not only Grid'5000 is heavily used for Avalon research, but several team members are also involved in Grid'5000 direction:

  • Frédéric Desprez is leading the “Groupement d'Intérêt Scientifique Groupement Grille 5K” which drives Grid'5000 .

  • Laurent Lefèvre is responsible of the Grid'5000 Lyon platform and member of the Grid'5000 direction committee.

  • Christian Perez is leading the Hemera initiative (https://www.grid5000.fr/Hemera ) and he is a member of the Grid'5000 direction committee.

  • Simon Delamare is the operational manager of the technical team.
