Wider impact of this work


Printable Summary

Genesis II, a new EGI technology provider, is an open source, standards based grid platform designed to support both high-throughput computing and secure data sharing. This hands-on training introduces participants to using Genesis II access layer tools and sharing capabilities such as the Global Federated File System (GFFS), the queue, and the client user interfaces.

The Genesis II Project is intended to provide the grid user community with easy-to-use tools to exploit grid technology to fulfil their computation and data management needs. The Genesis II platform is an interoperable (via adherence to community standards), and flexible platform for developing and evaluating new grid technologies and models.
