NEReSC Core Grid Middleware

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Savas Parastatidis, Professor Paul WatsonORCiD



The North-East Regional e-Science Centre is involved in a large number of research projects that rely on the design and development of a Grid-based infrastructure. Building a large number of different infrastructures would be time-consuming, difficult and risky; currently available Grid middleware is relatively immature and subject to frequent change, while the knowledge and experience of it among e-Science researchers is understandably very limited. Consequently, it was decided to analyse the requirements of all the Newcastle projects and to design and build a common Core Grid Middleware consisting of a set of Grid Services. This paper discusses the design and development of the Core Grid Middleware package, as well as the experiences both in designing Grid services, and in porting Web to Grid services.
