The National Grid Service (NGS) aims to help UK academics and researchers carry out their research by providing easy to use access to computational, data and other resources. It is funded by two governmental bodies, Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC), and is preparing to enter its fourth phase. The NGS provides computing and data resources that are accessed through a standard common set of services, the Minimum Software Stack. NGS services are based on the Globus Toolkit for job submission and storage resource broker (SRB) for data management. NGS resources host a large number of scientific software packages, including SIESTA and GAUSSIAN. As well as providing access to compute and data resources, the NGS also offers training (through the National e-Science Centre in Edinburgh) and Grid support to all UK academics and researchers in grid computing. With more than 500 users and twenty nine sites, the NGS is rapidly expanding, with a mission to provide coherent electronic access for UK researchers to all computational and data based resources and facilities required to carry out their research, independent of resource or researcher location.
