Opportunistic Ecosphere

Expanding the opportunistic ecosphere of the Open Science Grid

In the past year, the OSG delivered nearly 90 million CPU hours to so-called opportunistic virtual organizations (VOs). These opportunistic VOs are ones which do not have large computing resources of their own and thus rely on opportunistically running on resources not owned by the VO. The largest of these, the OSG VO, which mainly consists of individual researchers from …
