Globus: Fundamental tools for building your Grid (3 hour tutorial)
Jennifer M. Schopf
Argonne National Laboratory and eScience Institute
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 session we will walk through a set of use cases that will
demonstrate the use of many of the components which make up Globus, a 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. We will then open up the session to community
concerns and needs through discussion with the audience members.
Dr. Jennifer M. Schopf is a Scientist in the Distributed Systems Lab at
Argonne National Laboratory. She is a member of the Globus Alliance,
technology lead for the Monitoring and Discovery Service, chair of the
Incubator Management project which works with new project intake, and
Director for the SciDAC Center for Enabling Distributed Petascale Science
(CEDPS). She received MS and PhD degrees from the University of California,
San Diego in Computer Science and Engineering.
