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).
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.
vzhaipd (scoyo's Virtuozzo/OpenVZ HA IP Daemon) is a set of mount/umount Container scripts for Parallels Virtuozzo or OpenVZ that will make sure a HA IP is always present on one of two or more Containers. You can think of it as the poor man's VRRP for Virtuozzo and OpenVZ Containers. Use it for general service availability, software load-balancer failover, etc.
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.
The Secure Storage service for the gLite middleware provides users with a set of tools for storing data securely and in an encrypted format on the grid storage elements. Data is accessible and readable by authorized users only. Moreover, it solves the insider abuse problem by also preventing administrators of the storage elements from accessing the confidential data in a clear format. The service has been designed and developed for the grid middleware of the EGEE Project, gLite, in the context of the TriGrid VL Project.
Synapse is an ESB engine and XML router built completely on open standards. It is a mediation framework for XML messages and Web services that allows messages flowing through, into, or out of an organization to be mediated, including aspects such as logging, service lookup, performance mediation, versioning, failover, monitoring, fault management, and tracing.
The DPML SDK is a management platform for Java-based component development, resource management, and deployment. It is composed of the Transit resource management layer, the Depot multi-project build system, the Metro component management runtime engine, and the Station application management console.
