MS .NET Grid


This collaboration between Microsoft and NeSC (represented in this project by EPCC) has the goal of providing a practical demonstration to the UK e-Science community of the applicability of Microsoft .NET technologies to the hosting, development and deployment of Grid Services. A complementary goal is facilitating understanding of the Grid and e-Science within Microsoft. These goals will be realised by achieving the following project objectives: 1-Developing an implementation of the Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI) using .NET technologies. 2-Developing a suite of Grid Service demonstrators that can be deployed under this .NET OGSI implementation. 3-Developing training courses and materials to educate and inform the UK e-Science community about .NET and its applicability to Grid applications.4-Delivering training courses to delegates from the e-Science community. The prime measure of success of the project is the extent to which it succeeds in engaging and training the UK e-Science community in OGSI and .NET.
