GRID4ALL: Self-Grid: dynamic virtual organizations for schools, families, and all

Project ID: 034567
Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

Grid4all provides an opportunity for citizens to democratise the global network by opening up participation by lowering costs, facilitating usage, and supporting collaboration and data sharing. The DCMS framework simplifies programming of robust self-managing applications that could execute on unpredictable environments. This is one step towards truly global computing, where idle Internet resources can be reliably used by society and small businesses. The Telex middleware simplifies programming of distributed collaborative applications. Its replication and consistency service allows developers to focus on application logic and promotes a clean separation of concerns. With Telex a wide category of collaborative applications may be used in volatile environments.
