        wealth of information

--------

Not that IBM's grid tools are the best bet, but since it came into my
INBOX today, I thought I'd send this along...

mga.

Today's focus:  IBM grids iSeries and pSeries servers

By Deni Connor

IBM last week unveiled the latest version of its IBM Grid
Toolbox V3 for Linux on iSeries and pSeries server.

The toolbox can now help users deploy, manage and control
grid-computing environments. It contains a development
environment approved by the Global Grid Forum as part of the
Globus Toolkit.

New features in the toolbox let users use more of their spare
capacity, work more collaboratively, make applications more
available and make implementation faster.

It works on the SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 architecture
running on iSeries and pSeries V1.1 servers. The iSeries and
pSeries Grid implementation is built on the Open Grid Services
Architecture (OGSA), which consists of protocols and standards
for communications between heterogeneous, geographically
dispersed environments.

The toolbox includes sample code that lets developers learn how
to implement a grid as well about the kinds of applications that
are suitable for running on a grid. It also features integrated
IBM middleware, including an integrated run-time environment and
IBM data management software for reliability and scalability.

Further, the toolbox offers a user-friendly installation
process, an embedded version of the WebSphere Application Server
- Express V5.0.2 and a Java user interface.

The IBM Grid Toolbox V3 for Linux is available now at no charge.
