The Tier2 Center at California Institute of Technology provides computing support for the international scientific community. This project is a joint venture between the High Energy Physics group and Center for Advanced Computing Research. Our facility is part of the Data Grid Hierarchy set-up for Large Hadron Collider experiments. It serves as an intermediary between the Tier1 center at Fermilab and universities in Southern California. Our primary focus is computing support for the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment. We provide resources for other HEP experiments as well. Our group is an active member of the Open Science Grid Consortium.
