Grid Computing Newsletter Looks at Key Open Source Development Efforts
The Globus Consortium (founded by IBM, HP, Sun, Intel, Nortel, Univa and
Cisco) today published the latest issue of the Globus Consortium Journal.
(http://www.globusconsortium.org/journal). The newsletter focuses on open
source Grid computing projects - and this month features developer interviews
with the leaders of the three most important services in the Globus Toolkit
Highlights this month include:
Globus GRAM (Grid Resource Allocation Manager) -- In Grid environments,
success is hinged largely on the ability for apps to successfully negotiate
for the usage of underlying resources. Learn how GRAM facilities this
balancing act in Globus environments.
Globus Implementation of GridFTP (File Transfer Protocol) -- In Grids,
access to data is as important as access to compute resources. Learn how the
GridFTP protocol has evolved to navigate today's tough storage systems and
handle bulk file transfer.
The MDS (Monitoring & Discovery System) -- Globus Toolkit Grid
environments use the "Monitoring & Discovery System" for real-time insight
into what resources are being used and what services are running. Learn how
MDS works, and how it's evolved.
The Globus Consortium Journal is a discussion forum dedicated to open
source Grid issues for enterprise developers and business decision makers.
This monthly forum seeks to measure the Globus Toolkit's progress in the
enterprise, and to address the specific hurdles it must get past on the way.
Each month, editors feature perspectives from Globus Consortium members,
leading pundits from the enterprise, and practical advice from the pioneers
of open source Grid.
