Grid Computing: EGEE and the gLite Middleware

Grid Computing has, over the past few years, matured sufficiently to make it a viable solution for real-world problems. However, there are many different toolkits today that allow to build a Grid environment. And while this wealth of different solutions may offer techniques applicable to the widest possible range of computational problems, their very availability directly contradicts the inherent promise of the "World Wide Grid" to offer a compatible and standardised computing environment.

It is the goal of the EGEE project to create a world-wide, production quality Grid infrastructure for user groups as diverse as High Energy Physics and Earth Observation. EGEE thus tries to overcome the problems posed by the various technical solutions. EGEE ("Enabling Grids for e-SciencE") is the European Union's largest Grid initiative.

The talk briefly introduces the topic of Grid Computing, followed by a thorough discussion of technical constraints and different toolkits contributing to EGEE. The talk will include a practical demonstration of the new EGEE middleware gLite .
