VO TypeOSG User and Resource Provider (Provides services to the OSG and has/will have users who do OSG-dependent scientific research)
Certificate Issue Only This VO is only used to issue user certificates to OSG community.False
DescriptionSURAgrid is a consortium of organizations collaborating and combining resources to help bring grid technology to the level of seamless, shared infrastructure. The vision for SURAgrid is to orchestrate access to a rich set of distributed capabilities in order to meet diverse users' needs. Capabilities to be cultivated include locally contributed resources, project-specific tools and environments, highly specialized or HPC access, and gateways to national and international cyberinfrastructure.
CommunityThe SURAgrid user community consists of researchers from member organizations who work in disciplines such as Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Biomedicine, and Computer Science. SURAgrid's goals are (1) to develop a scalable infrastructure that leverages local institutional identity and authorization while managing access to shared resources across institutional boundaries; (2) to promote the use of this infrastructure for the broad research and education community, creating a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts; and (3) to provide a forum for participating institutions to gain additional experience with grid technology and to promote collaborative project development.
Parent VO Sometimes a project grows large enough to include several offshoot projects in it. When this happens, such a VO would want to be its own registration but would want to cite the parent project on its registration. This item helps a VO manager make such a mapping. N/A
