Many Grid architectures have been developed in recent years. These range from the large community Grids such as LHG and EGEE to single site deployments such as Condor. However, these Grid architec-tures have tended to focus on the execution of executables. Application scientists are now seeking to deploy their entire workflows onto these Grids, which will(More)
Over the period September 2002-April 2003 the UK Grid Engineering Task Force and staff at Regional e-Science Centres and CCLRC deployed the Globus Toolkit GT2 at 14 sites and on approximately 80 compute resources to set up the first production-quality e-Science Grid for the UK. This work is proving to be exemplary of what can be achieved using heterogeneous(More)
The Grid is a concept which allows the sharing of resources between distributed communities, allowing each to progress towards potentially different goals. As adoption of the Grid increases so are the activities that people wish to conduct through it. The GRIDCC project is a European Union funded project addressing the issues of integrating instruments into(More)
As the main computing paradigm for resource- intensive scientific applications, Grid[1] enables resource sharing and dynamic allocation of computational resources. It promotes access to distributed data, operational flexibility and collaboration, and allows service providers to be distributed both conceptually and physically to meeting different(More)
BACKGROUND Microarray experimentation requires the application of complex analysis methods as well as the use of non-trivial computer technologies to manage the resultant large data sets. This, together with the proliferation of tools and techniques for microarray data analysis, makes it very challenging for a laboratory scientist to keep up-to-date with(More)
The emergence of computational and data grids has led to resources within a single organisation being exposed to other users within a 'virtual organisation' (VO) that encompasses a dynamic distributed infrastructure. Due to this dynamic nature of VOs, there is a need for an infrastructure to facilitate the management of the constituent users and resources.(More)
Recent advances in high performance distributed computing have led to the emergence of computational and data grids. The resources within a single organisation are being exposed to other users within a 'virtual organisation' (VO). The VO encompasses a dynamic set of distributed resources, a distributed user base and a distributed management infrastructure.(More)
