An e-Social Science project has successfully used the Transfer-queue Over Globus (TOG) software to build a grid linking compute resources at The University of Edinburgh with those at the Curtin Business School in Perth, Australia. This ESRC-funded project entitled 'Informing business and regional policy: grid fusion of global data and local knowlegde', will investigate data mining of corporate data via the grid.

The TOG software was developed as part of the UK e-Science funded SunData and Compute Grids Project (http://www.epcc.ed.ac.uk/sungrid/), and is available via the open source Grid Engine web site at http://gridengine.sunsource.net/project/gridengine/tog.html. The TOG software allows an enterprise to access remote compute resource via their existing local Grid Engine installation. The TOG software integrates Grid Engine V5.3 and Globus Toolkit V2.2.x to provide this access to remote resources.
