Final Report - NEXTGRID (The Next Generation Grid)

Project ID: 511563
Funded under: FP6-IST


This final report of the Nextgrid project presents its vision and how that vision was realised. It describes the main results, namely a set of generalised specifications and the accompanying cookbook which enable commercial grid systems to conform with the proposed architecture.

Nextgrid was a research projects funded under the Sixth Framework Programme to promote the widespread use of grid systems both by the research community and industry. Taking the Open grid services architecture as its starting point, Nextgrid produced reference implementations that overcome the limitations of current grid systems.

This document targets all those interested in exploiting the opportunities that next generation grids have to offer. However, more detailed information on technical aspects is presented in the Nextgrid Whitepaper and the publications referenced therein.
