How Does Gridipedia Help You Applying Grid Technologies to Business?

21.01.2009
Interested in applying Grid technologies to business? Then it’s well worth bookmarking www.gridipedia.eu. Gridipedia provides you with a repository of Grid software components and solutions designed to meet common business requirements.

In addition it is also a useful source of information on design patterns for solutions to common Grid problems, proven use cases on companies that are applying Grid solutions in industry and the legal issues that relate to Grid computing.

What is Gridipedia?

Gridipedia is a knowledge and toolset repository which has been developed consisting of Grid service components and best practices to support European businesses with the uptake of Grid technologies.

The Gridipedia website (www.gridipedia.eu) is currently seeing large growth and is populated with real Grid application from the BEinGRID project, focused on specific business processes and addressing current customer needs and requirements. It is now seen as public source of information on application of Grid technologies in business context.

According to Santi Ristol, Services Area Manager at Atos Origin, “Gridipedia is the European Grid meeting point of the future – a repository for business case studies and best practice guides where Grid players can find solutions and partners. This is why Gridipedia is for all your Grid needs.”

Gridipedia differs from other Grid repositories

Gridipedia differs from other Grid repositories as it currently holds a wealth of business-oriented information based on the insights of two specialist teams – one technical, one business – that have been analysing successful Grid implementations in real business scenarios.

These teams demonstrate the added value of Gridipedia, all content must pass stringent tests for submission, ensuring that it really delivers on its promises. By ensuring that all hosted material has business relevance and can be traced to a real use scenario we avoid the “technology-push” problem of many repositories. As a business-pull repository we also seek out and solicit key contributions from third parties.

Gridipedia and your business

We expect that both well-covered technical and business aspects will directly encourage the adoption of Grid technologies by showing economic and market benefits and the associated technical solutions for adopters in actual successful cases.

In addition to this, Gridipedia is an open and interactive site which aims at hosting Grid-related business-oriented results of other projects and from private organisations. The final result is an extensive library of case studies, information and code for software solutions to real-life problems.

Through all this Gridipedia is targeting key decision makers in both business and technical roles who will oversee the implementation of Grid in their businesses or who are looking to further develop their existing Grid capabilities. Potential end users will also be attracted by the demonstrated benefits that Grid technology can bring to their work such as reduced time to market, new service offerings, reduced costs, improved quality and greater flexibility.

In the long term, Gridipedia is seen as a market place for Grid technologies, where vendors of Grid solutions can meet buyers from the commercial sector; where consultants, suppliers and programmers can exhibit and trade their offerings and where potential buyers of all levels can find the information and products they require.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
