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: First diode for magnetic fields

Innsbruck quantum physicists have constructed a diode for magnetic fields and then tested it in the laboratory. The device, developed by the research groups led by the theorist Oriol Romero-Isart and the experimental physicist Gerhard Kirchmair, could open up a number of new applications.

Electric diodes are essential electronic components that conduct electricity in one direction but prevent conduction in the opposite one. They are found at the...

Im Focus: Nonstop Tranport of Cargo in Nanomachines

Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.

Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
