The Globus Alliance
List of projects accepted into The Globus Alliance
The Globus Alliance is a community of organizations and individuals developing fundamental technologies behind the "Grid," which lets people share computing power, databases, instruments, and other on-line tools securely across corporate, institutional, and geographic boundaries without sacrificing local autonomy. Since its creation in 1996, the Globus Alliance has been committed to developing open source software, particularly the Globus Toolkit (http://www.globus.org/toolkit/). In the last year, The Globus Alliance has also launched a new project, Globus Online, a cloud-hosted online service that allows organization to obtain grid capabilities without complex software installation, configuration, and administrative hassles. Globus Online currently provides a transfer service that can be used to move big data securely and reliably among local and distributed computing resources, with more services to follow in the coming year.
