The paper reviews the Astro-WISE infrastructure and demonstrates that the Astro-WISE Information System provides a Grid itself. We describe the integration of Astro-WISE with an external Grid infrastructure (BiGGrid). The integration is performed on all infrastructural layers (data storage, metadata and processing layers) with Astro-WISE as a "master" infrastructure. We report the use of the integrated infrastructure for the processing of Astro-WISE hosted data and for the future development of Astro-WISE and Target projects.
