Open Grid Services Architecture - Data Access and Integration Services



The primary goal of this work is to develop a leading position in the design and development of Grid Services, compliant with the Open Grid Services Architecture, that enable Database Access and Integration (OGSA-DAI). Products will take four forms:1. An established framework for Grid Database Services and Grid Database Management Services; 2. Useful and composable examples of Grid Database Services and Grid Database Management Services as generic middleware that can be deployed in a large number of grid-based projects; 3. Improvements in the design of OGSA standards and reference implementations of the corresponding generic middleware; 4. Papers and tutorials on the design and use of the OGSA-DAI products. This requirement for database access and integration is central to a large proportion of e-Science applications and to e-Business. Many advances in science, engineering and decision making depend on making better use of growing volumes of data in diverse and dispersed repositories. Many of these are independently managed and curated.
