Incorporation of QoS parameters in heterogeneous grid environmentsOur research concentrates on non-functional service properties in OGSI-conformant containers (see past master theses).
Idle Time Clusters in the GridThe Windows operating system can be seen as the most suitable operating system for idle time computing. We are working on the tight interconnection of grid technologies and idle time management architectures (e.g. Condor) by utilizing platform-neutral middleware technologies (Java, .NET).
Globus ToolkitWe are operating the HPI Grid-Testbed, which consists of heterogeneus hardware and software components. The infrastructure is managed by a Globus 3.2 installation.
Global Grid ForumThe Global Grid Forum (GGF) coordinates the global standardization efforts for grid computing.
We participate in the work of the Distributed Resource Management Application API Working Group (DRMAA), which develops an API specification for the submission and control of jobs to one or more Distributed Resource Management (DRM) systems.
- Slides for our part in the GGF12 DRMAA Tutorial
- GGF12 example source code for distributed povray rendering (including DRMAA-enabled configure script); please note that this code does not work with Condor version <= 6.7.1.
- Preliminary version of our DRMAA Globus job manager
- Working draft: Distributed Resource Management Application API Bindings for .NET.
TeachingWe are offering a Grid Computing seminar in Bachelor (2003, 2004, 2006) and Master (2004, 2006) courses.
