Australia has invested heavily in production high performance computing facilities over recent years, creating significant opportunities for Australian computational scientists. But, the nature of these resources makes them inappropriate for research in experimental computer science, because it is not possible to modify the operating environment, system hardware and software configuration. This proposal seeks to construct a testbed of networked cluster computers to support existing and new research into enterprise grids. The infrastructure will be distributed among four sites so that experiments can be run locally and remotely crossing administrative domains, incurring communication overheads, and heterogeneity.
