Grid appliances - Joseph Dell Email

Out of the University of Florida, is the Grid Appliance project at www.grid-appliance.org . I downloaded and had this up and running immediately. Although the security is not that of Globus, as soon as I started the VM session, it went out and connected to the grid fabric and was ready to transfer files or process jobs. As info… Joseph


Thanks, Joseph. Very very cool. It's nice that other folks are thinking as we are thinking...a little validating, to be sure.

A little more detail: This grid appliance provides workload management services utilizing Condor (http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/) . The good news: you boot the VM and you auto-connect to the grid. the bad news: there is some basic functionality but it is limited.

See http://www.grid-appliance.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=51&Itemid=61 for a full list of features.

Looking forward to playing with this more!
