Constructing Campus Grids: Experiences adapting myVocs for use on UABgrid

Time 04/24/07 04:30PM-05:30PM

Session Abstract

The UABgrid is the campus grid computing environment being built at the
University of Alabama at Birmingham as a collaboration between the IT,
Computer Science, and Engineering Departments. This session will
document the current state of the infrastructure and highlight the use
of myVocs as the foundation of the UABgrid identity management and
collaboration infrastructure. myVocs is a collaboration environment that
leverages Shibboleth, GridShib and standard open source applications to
support the construction of user managed, inter-institutional virtual
organizations. The successes and short-comings of this approach will be
explored by documenting the effort to port an existing group
collaboration to the UABgrid virtual organization infrastructure. Future
directions, including UABgrid as an InCommon application and
enhancements for myVocs based on this experience will also be discussed.
