Introduction to Grid Computing 1

Posted by md on February 08, 2006

I will give a lecture introducing the basic concepts of grid computing tomorrow. The lecture consists of a talk and a demo, more specifically:

  • What is grid computing? Demo of Unicore included!
  • Grid security
  • Grid resource management
  • Grid data management

It will take place at the TU Kaiserslautern, Feb. 9, 2005, 10 a.m., in room 36-438. You’re welcome to attend it.

This is the material I created, you may reuse it under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0 Germany License. I think this is version 0.6 of the final talk, so I’ll have to refine it next year.

During my talk, I mention the Unicore testbed, available here: Unicore Test Grid. You can easily play around with Unicore, just follow the instructions give there.

Another easy way to look at grid technology is the Instant Grid project: you can download a Knoppix”-based live CD that allows you to build a Globus Toolkit 4-based home grid.
