RIKEN CCJ (PHENIX Compuring Center in Japan)
RIKEN CC-J (PHENIX Computing Center in Japan ) has been under construction
at the RIKEN Wako campus
over a three year period, beginning in 1999. The RIKEN CCJ is intended as the principle site of computing for PHENIX
simulation, a regional PHENIX Asian computing center, and as a center for the analysis of spin physics. The
planned computing capacity will be sufficient to meet the bulk of the simulation needs of PHENIX. The planned
robotic storage capability will permit efficient micro-DST production as a regional computing center. By
providing a vital source of regional computing, the CC-J will also encourage collaborators from China, Korea,
India and Japan to be actively involved in analysis of PHENIX physics data.
Importantly, the planned capabilities of the RIKEN CCJ are in concert with the research plans of RIKEN and RIKEN
BNL Research Center, which initiated the RHIC spin program and which plan to expand their involvement in the
entire PHENIX program.
Proposal for the CC-J was presented at the RHIC-Computing Advisory Committee Meeting on 3 Dec. 1998.
