Abstract: Over the years, in support to the Science Operations Centers at ESAC, we have set up two Grid infrastructures. These have been built: 1) to facilitate daily research for scientists at ESAC, 2) to provide high computing capabilities for project data processing pipelines (e.g., Herschel), 3) to support science operations activities (e.g., calibration monitoring). Furthermore, closer collaboration between the science archives, the Virtual Observatory (VO) and data processing activities has led to an other Grid use case: the Remote Interface to XMM-Newton SAS Analysis (RISA). This web service-based system allows users to launch SAS tasks transparently to the GRID, save results on http-based storage and visualize them through VO tools. This paper presents real and operational use cases of Grid usages in these contexts
