As part of the MS.NETGrid project we announce the release of the MS.NETGrid Technology Preview 1.0. The goal of the MS.NETGrid project is to provide 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. This release is one aspect of this demonstration.

MS.NETGrid Technology Preview 1.0 is a prototype of an OGSI-compliant container for the Microsoft .NET platform. The prototype features:

  • A programming model based upon ASP.NET .asmx files.
  • A hosting environment for Grid services.
  • Implementations of the GridService and Factory portTypes.
  • Example services.

The release can be downloaded at http://www.epcc.ed.ac.uk/~ogsanet. The project WWW site also contains links to an overview of the design and a User Guide.

We also will be holding a training course on OGSI and .NET at the National e-Science Centre in Edinburgh on the 9-10th September. Information on this course will be available on our project WWW site and also on the NeSC WWW site at http://www.nesc.ac.uk in due course.
