Globus and Community
Time 10/11/07 01:30PM-04:00PM
The Globus Project is developing fundamental technologies needed to build Grids --persistent environments that enable software applications to integrate instruments, displays, computational and information. This paradigm has become common in many application communities that use distributed resources in a coordinated manner.
In this half day tutorial, we will give a brief overview of the components which make up Globus, a coordinated set of open source software that includes services and libraries for security, resource management, monitoring and discovery, file transfer and data management. We summarize future plans, and give details on how others can contribute to this effort.
