GridShib is a glue layer that transparently binds a grid service provider such as the Globus Toolkit to a role-based authentication and access control system such as Shibboleth, so as to provide fine-grained access controls to members of virtual and physical organizations within a grid without having to distribute and synchronize information about individual users between those organizations.
GridWay is a workload manager that performs job execution management and resource brokering on a grid consisting of distinct computing platforms managed by Globus services. It enables large- scale, reliable, and efficient sharing of computing resources managed by different Local Resource Management systems within a single organization (enterprise grid) or scattered across several administrative domains (partner or supply-chain grid).
LibMySequoia provides an alternative library for MySQL C client library (libmysqlclient.so) to benefit from the Sequoia high availability and performance scalability clustering solution. Native MySQL client programs can use the Sequoia clustering solution without changing any line of code in the application. The benefit of this solution is that native C applications, PHP, Perl, and Python programs using the MySQL C API interface now can transparently connect to a Sequoia cluster.
The gLite distribution is an integrated set of components designed to enable resource sharing. In other words, this is middleware for building a grid. The gLite middleware is produced by the EGEE project. The distribution model is to construct different services ("node-types") from these components and then ensure easy installation and configuration on the chosen platforms.
