|The overall aim of the
project is to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of OGSA
by developing an experimental OGSA-based grid across
|This aim is refined into the
- Establish an experimental OGSA-based Grid for the UK
- Evaluate GT3 by deploying computational and data
intensive OGSA-based E-Science applications across the
- Identify and, if possible, close, gaps in the OGSI
specification from a cross-organizational deployment
point of view.
- Demonstrate usability improvements of OGSA compared
- Derive recommendations for the implementation of a
production-version of a UK OGSA-based grid.
- Investigate and demonstrate a migration path from
GT2 to OGSA.
- Gain experience with using higher-level grid
services (data access and integration, notification,
workflow) to inform GGF standardisation of OGSA.
- Investigate interoperability of different versions
of the OGSI standard.
