Aorta is a load-balancing clustered P2P application. It executes Tasklets (which have the ability to split themselves into sub tasks that can be executed in pararell). A typical cluster contains of a LAN with 1-256 computers, each one running aorta. A Tasklet can be of any type ranging from encoding MP3s, Genomic DNA Alignment, or simply to rendering Web pages for high speed/heavily loaded Web sites. You can make functions calls to C/C++, applications like Matlab, etc.
Cerber Grid is a light-weight high performance Java grid system that combines simplicity and easy of use with a powerful and versatile architecture. It contains a Web interface that allows a user to submit and view jobs, view statistics on the controller and the nodes, and perform other administrative functions.
Equalizer is middleware for creating and deploying parallel OpenGL-based applications. It enables applications to benefit from multiple graphics cards, processors, and computers to scale rendering performance, visual quality, and display size. An Equalizer-based application runs unmodified on any visualization system, from a simple workstation to large scale graphics clusters, multi-GPU workstations, and Virtual Reality installations.
GRIA is Grid middleware that enables use of the Grid in a secure, interoperable and flexible manner. It makes use of business models, processes, and semantics to allow resource owners and users to discover each other and negotiate terms for access to high-value resources. It implements an overall business process to find, procure and utilise resources capable of carrying out high-value, expert-assisted computations. By focusing on business processes and the associated semantics, it enables users to provision for their computational needs more cost effectively, and develop new business models for some of their services. Services from different providers can be combined together to create applications using a simple and easy-to-use API.
JBoss is an Open Source, standards-compliant, Enterprise JavaBeans application server implemented in pure Java. JBoss provides JBossServer, the basic EJB container and JMX infrastructure, JBossMQ for JMS messaging, JBossMail for mail, JBossTX for JTA/JTS transactions, JBossSX for JAAS based security, JBossCX for JCA connectivity, and JBossCMP for CMP persistence. It integrates with Tomcat Servlet/JSP container and Jetty Web server/servlet container, and enables you to mix and match these components through JMX by replacing any component you wish with a JMX-compliant implementation for the same APIs. The goal is to provide a full J2EE stack in the Free/Open Source software world.
JCGrid is a set of easy-to-use tools for real-world grid-computing. It doesn't require any file system sharing capability (such as NFS). It allows you to easily split a CPU-intensive task among several computers by using the JCGrid framework. Any file required for completing the task will be transferred by the framework. A cache is used in order to minimize file transfers. You can easily add or remove computers from the grid at runtime without losing any work. Support for POVRay is included as an example of use.
