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.
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).
Gridder is a suite of portlets designed to enable users to submit jobs in a grid environment. It comes with a full manual and includes documentation produced during development, which addresses topics related to grid and cluster setup and configuration. It seamlessly integrates with OGCE, as it was the focus during the whole development process. The portlets are designed to simplify job submission tasks with end-user friendliness in mind, and a well-defined separation of concerns from the user point of view (tasks and jobs) and from the technical point of view (the architecture and design).
HA/FST is a high availability clustering tool for up to four Solaris nodes. It supports any application that can be managed from the command line. It comes with support for NIC failover, Apache, Oracle, NFS, Samba, Solaris Volume Manager, Veritas Volume Manager, and application fallback and failto.
Cluster Starter Kit for Linux uses Cluster System Management (CSM) software from IBM. With the Cluster Starter Kit for Linux's GUI, portions of CSM can be easily manipulated. Also provided is an easy way to view the status, change the status, or manipulate the conditions of nodes in a cluster.
ISPMan is a distributed system used to manage components of an ISP from a central management interface. Its written entirely in Perl, using an LDAP backend to manage DNS, Apache virtual hosts, Postfix, Cyrus, FTP, etc. It provides a central Web-based user interface for admins/helpdesk and a commandline interface to automate tasks or hook to other systems.
