iVDGL Project Goals for ATLAS

  1. Integrate the GriPhyN VDT (see US ATLAS in GriPhyN) with ATLAS Core Software
  2. Develop two prototype Tier 2 Centers for the US ATLAS Software and Computing Project
  3. Integrate Tier 2 centers with US ATLAS Tier 1 Facility
  4. Support development of US ATLAS distributed IT Infrastructure
  5. Support development of US ATLAS Grid Testbed
  6. Develop, integrate the US ATLAS piece of the iVDGL Laboratory
