StratusLab Releases Open-Source Cloud Solution for Grid Infrastructures

The StratusLab project has just released the first version of its cloud computing distribution, which aims to provide a full cloud solution for grid and cluster computing. Funded through the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), the two-year StratusLab project aims to integrate ‘cloud computing’ technologies into ‘grid’ infrastructures. Grids link computers and data that […]

Grid Architecture from a Metascheduling Perspective

The July edition of the IEEE Computer Magazine includes a paper presenting a taxonomy of grid architectures from the metascheduler point of view. It provides many examples of grids using the GridWay Metascheduler in different ways, and it deals with important issues like grid interoperation. This is the abstract: Integrating diverse grid technologies is an […]

DSA-Research Participates in the EU Initiative to Integrate ‘Cloud’ with ‘Grid’

Researchers from a collaboration of six European organisations have attracted funding worth €2.3million to develop a new Internet-based software project called StratusLab. The two year project, headed up by Project Coordinator Dr Charles Loomis from CNRS, was launched in Paris today (14th June 2010).
