Globus

The Globus project is developing the fundamental technology that is needed to build computational grids. Grids are persistent environments that enable software applications to integrate instruments, displays, computational and information resources that are managed by diverse organizations in widespread locations. Grid applications often involve large amounts of data and/or computing and often require secure resource sharing across organizational boundaries.

The Globus project is centered at Argonne National Laboratory’s Mathematics and Computer Science Division and the University of Southern California’s Information Sciences Institute. Major partners include the National Computational Science Alliance, the NASA Information Power Grid project, the National Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure, the University of Chicago, and the University of Wisconsin.
