BEinGRID Publication Notice: "Better Business Using Grid Solutions"

01.10.2008
BEinGRID, Europe's largest research project in the field of Grid Computing, releases a free booklet of compiled case studies and background information. Learn how to make your business more efficient and reduce IT costs using distributed computing.

With increasing demand from business for higher efficiency, business agility, and lower cost, for several years information communication technologies have been shifting from static silos with manually managed applications towards dynamic virtual shared environments.

BEinGRID (Business Experiments in GRID) aims to support this development by fostering the adoption of Grid technologies across the EU and stimulating research into associated innovative business models.

The use of Grid technology brings many benefits such as better utilisation of IT resources, security enhancements and increased flexibility due to global access to resources through standard web-browsers. Especially in the manufacturing sector, Grid Computing can speed up interactions between designers, specialized research groups and suppliers, by providing quick access to shared relevant data and high-performance computing resources.

Despite these benefits, the commercial exploitation of Grid solutions across the European Union is still being kept back by the lack of reference cases to persuade potential users. BEinGRID has undertaken a series of targeted Business Experiments across a broad spectrum of European business sectors, including the media, financial, logistics, manufacturing, retail and textile sectors.

A compiled showcase of these pilot applications called "Better Business Using Grid Solutions" is now available for free. Featured solutions include high-end simulation environments via web browsers for engineers, automatic supply chain management in partner Grids, virtual reality applications in architecture, Voice over IP and mobile video conferencing, data backup, risk and sales management the financial business, and many more.

Additionally, the Better Business Using Grid Solutions booklet is also available on www.gridipedia.eu. The interactive online community Gridipedia aims to be the future prime information source for Grid technology, case studies and guides. Administrated by a panel of five experts from both business and technical backgrounds, the website is growing rapidly.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
