The W-GRASS team belongs to the Centre for Parallel Computing (CPC), University of Westminster . CPC is focused on research and application of distributed and parallel computing, including cluster and Grid computing. CPC was involved in several COPERNICUS, COST, EPSRC, FP4, FP5 and FP6 research projects. These projects included the development of tools to support design, implementation, testing and running parallel applications. Current research areas include automatic Grid service deployment, Grid registries and repositories, performance issues of Grid computing, Grid brokering and gridifying legacy code applications. CPC and University of Westminster joined the National Grid Service (NGS) in February 2006 providing a 32 node cluster for the NGS users.
Members of the W-GRASS team are developing the following solutions: GEMLCA and P-GRADE Grid portal. The Grid Execution Management for Legacy Code Application (GEMLCA) supports the creation of complex Grid workflows of legacy code applications as a Grid-compliant service. GEMLCA is integrated with the P-GRADE Grid portal providing a graphical Grid environment to edit, run, monitor and visualise Grid-enabled applications, manage Grid certificates, Grids and their resources. Users can access either existing Grid services or create and deploy new Grid services via the Grid portal.
