What is the P-GRADE Grid Portal?
The P-GRADE Grid Portal is a web based, service rich environment for the development,
execution and monitoring of workflows and workflow based parameter studies on various grid platforms.
P-GRADE Portal hides low-level grid access mechanisms by high-level
graphical interfaces, making even non grid expert users capable of defining and executing
distributed applications on multi-institutional computing infrastructures.
Workflows and workflow based parameter studies defined in the P-GRADE Portal are
portable between grid platforms without learning new systems or re-engineering program code.
Technology neutral interfaces and concepts of the P-GRADE Portal help users cope with the large variety
of grid solutions. More than that, any P-GRADE Portal installation can access multiple
grids simultaneously, which enables the easy distribution of complex applications on several platforms.
Main features and releases
P-GRADE Grid Portal is the official portal and serves the user communities of several
multi-institutional grid infrastructures all over the world. It is extensively used in training
and education by international grid research projects to demonstrate the capabilities of state of the art grid infrastructures
and the concepts of grid application development. Several P-GRADE Portal installations are available for production and training purposes.
The GPL licensed P-GRADE Portal is developed by an open consortium coordinated by the
Laboratory of Parallel and Distributed Systems at MTA-SZTAKI, Hungary.
The development of P-GRADE Grid Portal is supported among others by the EU financed SEE-GRID,
Coregrid and EGEE projects.
