Beyond Grid Portals and Towards SaaS - A New Access Model for Computational Grids, in the dMRI Brain Context

Tarik Zakaria Benmerar, Mouloud Kachouane, Fatima Oulebsir-Boumghar

Abstract

Acigna-G is an ongoing research project to develop a new hybrid Grid SaaS architecture. CloudMRI is our proof-of-concept Acigna-G based SaaS Service for the Brain dMRI field. The main objective of such architecture is to provide local (Browser) and remote (Grid) intensive computational capabilities completly abstracted to the SaaS user. The result is a combination of an in Browser Rendering and Computation engine, interoperable REST-SOAP Grid Services, and interoperable web-grid authentication mechanisms. Such architecture can allow new types of SaaS Services, specifically for the dMRI Brain field.
