Interoperability With WLCG

Why interoperate with WLCG?

"The OSG Consortium builds and operates the OSG. The Consortium was formed in 2004 to bring resources and researchers from universities and national laboratories together to give scientists from many fields access to shared resources worldwide." (Source) Interoperation with WLCG will allow scientists access to the OSG shared resources, helping to fulfill one of OSG's goals.


There are four broadly defined groups or types of interoperability that OSG and WLCG depend on for smooth interoperation. These are Information Services, Accounting Services, Monitoring (SAM), and Security.
