The overall aim of the BioSimGrid project is to build a distributed data and computing platform to enable large scale analysis of the results of biomolecular simulations. To address the challenges of distributed computing on large amounts of simulation data, we have built an open software framework system based on off-the-shelf middleware, SRB (Storage Resource Broker) and the distributed enterprise database, Oracle 10g. We describe the implementation details: architecure, data distribution, security, and implemented analysis modules. We outline two examples, among many more, where BioSimGrid is a necessary tool.
