The g-Eclipse project – funded by the European Commission – is building an integrated workbench framework to access the power of existing Grid and Cloud infrastructures. In the last year, the g-Eclipse project implemented support for a services oriented Grid middleware called GRIA. With the availability of Amazon WebServices (AWS), the g-Eclipse team developed support for this middleware too.
The talk will give a short introduction in the domain of Grid and Cloud computing – in science and business – generally and to the general use cases for users of Grid and Cloud infrastructures. During the talk, the interaction of g-Eclipse with AWS services will be demonstrated. Furthermore the interoperability of Cloud and Grid computing - using the Eclipse file system - will be explained and shown.
After the g- Eclipse project will be presented, the architecture and integration of g-Eclipse framework will be shown. The status of the project and future plans will be discussed. During the talk demos will be given to give a deeper insight in the potential of worldwide Grid infrastructures and potential of the user-friendly, Eclipse-based access to Grid and Cloud infrastructures.
