GRIDBLOCKS – WEB PORTAL AND CLIENT FOR DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING

Juho Karppinen, Marko Niinimäki, John White, Tapio Niemi

Abstract

GridBlocks is an architecture and a reference implementation of a distributed computing platform for heterogenous computer clusters. It can be used when there is a need to analyze vast amounts of data that is stored in a distributed fashion. The computing and storage resources can be used both by a Web interface or by a standalone Java client. Grid Security Infrastructure (GSI) is used for secure authentication and communication.
