Printable Summary

The workshop is focused on the presentation of the appliances (virtual machines) provided by IGE to the European Grid ecosystem. It targets both, service providers and end-users, and it will cover the topics:
- An introduction to the components packaged by IGE (both software adaptations and GT5.x)
- IGE appliances available on the StratusLab Marketplace
- Short demo on how to setup a GridFTP, a GRAM5, or a GridWay etc. machine based on our appliances
The demo will also show the smooth integration of the IGE packaged software with the various operating system distributions. For that, the installation and configuration of an IGE component will be performed from scratch.

Wider impact of this work

This contribution is of relevance to both grid administrators and end-users. This workshop will give practical insight on what is released by IGE as appliances. These appliances can be further used to easily and rapidly setup a grid environment based on GT 5.x, either for training purposes or for production use.
