Reformatting information currently held in databases into HyperText Markup Language (HTML) pages suitable for the WorldWide Web (WWW) requires significant effort both in creating the pages initially and their subsequent maintenance. We avoid these costs by directly coupling a WWW server to the source data within a database using additional software we have(More)
The UK e-Science Programme is a £250M, 5 year initiative which has funded over 100 projects. These application-led projects are underpinned by an emerging set of core middleware services that allow the coordinated, collaborative use of distributed resources. This set of middleware services runs on top of the research network and beneath the applications we(More)
Data intensive computing presents a significant challenge for traditional supercomputing architectures that maximize FLOPS since CPU speed has surpassed IO capabilities of HPC systems and BeoWulf clusters. We present the architecture for a three tier commodity component cluster designed for a range of data intensive computations operating on petascale data(More)
Purpose: To explain the nature of the 'e-Science' revolution in 21 st century scientific research and its consequences for the library community. Design/methodology/approach: The concepts of e-Science are illustrated by a discussion of the CombeChem, eBank and SmartTea projects. The issue of open access is then discussed with reference to arXiv, PubMed(More)
