UK NGS - Development & Operation

The UK National Grid Service (NGS) http://www.ngs.ac.uk is a national consortium of computational and data resource that makes use of defined open standard grid interfaces to provide services to academia.  The second phase of the NGS project was funded by JISC and EPSRC.  New hardware was provided for the NGS core sites and staff effort to continue to run and develop the NGS service was funded through to Mar 2009.  The third phase of the NGS moved the service towards the provision of central services for new large e-infrastructure efforts. The NGS project is led by STFC and is in collaboration with Universities of Leeds and Manchester.
