OMII-UK moving towards solution-based software

16.08.2007
OMII-UK has released the latest version of its Grid software, which will be its last before the launch in September of its Software Solutions for e-Research, a new initiative to produce solution-based software.

The new release (version 3.4.0) includes new and award-winning software components and also benefits from improved security and can be accessed and downloaded at www.omii.ac.uk.

The modular design of the new release makes it possible to pick and choose which software components are installed. In fact, it comprises 15 software components, providing the user with an immense number of possible configurations.

Two new software components have been integrated with the new release: GridSphere allows users to develop their own portlets and Open Grid Manager is used to monitor and manage a user’s grid resources.

According to Neil Chue Hong, Director of OMII-UK, the Institute is now moving closer to its goal of enabling scientists to produce their own Grid-enabled applications.

‘We are trying to move away from regular releases and towards being more solution-focused so that we can produce packages that are of real value to scientists,’ he said.

Founded in 2006, OMII-UK is funded by EPSRC through the UK e-Science Core programme, and is a collaboration between the Universities of Southampton, Edinburgh and Manchester.

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...
