ASGC was established to join the international collaborations centered at CERN to build distributed computing infrastructure for e-Science in 2005. ASGC aims to develop advanced distributed research infrastructure based on requirements from multiple disciplinary research applications of AS, and to support AS being a major Asian hub of global research and collaboration network.
In support of its missions and in order to strengthen the global e-Infrastructure ecosystem, ASGC has been participating many international e-Science collaborations together with Asian partners since 2006, such as EGEE, EGI-Inspire, EGI-Engage, EOSC-Hub, etc.
Exploring the roadmap towards open science and open research ecosystem is also included in our missions.
Endorsed by AS and NSC/MOST, ASGC has been acting as WLCG Tier-1 Centre since 2005. ASGC stays at the forefront of distributed computing technology R&D through actively participating in the WLCG collaborations.
MOST (TWAREN) and MoE (TANet)
ASGC was designated as the center responsible for providing high throughput research network between Taiwan and Europe as well as Asia (ASGCNet/ASNet), in collaboration with MOST (TWAREN) and MoE (TANet).
ASGC supports advanced computing needs of AS and provides easy access to achieve excellence in researches through distributed computing infrastructure.
