M-grid: Using Ubiquitous Web Technologies to create a Computational Grid

Walters, Robert John and Crouch, Stephen (2005) M-grid: Using Ubiquitous Web Technologies to create a Computational Grid At European Grid Conference (EGC) 2005. 14 - 16 Feb 2005.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


There are many potential users and uses for grid computing. However, the concept of sharing computing resources excites security concerns and, whilst being powerful and flexible, at least for novices, existing systems are complex to install and use. Together these represent a significant barrier to potential users who are interested to see what grid computing can do. This paper describes m-grid, a system for building a computational grid which can accept tasks from any user with access to a web browser and distribute them to almost any machine with access to the internet and manages to do this without the installation of additional software or interfering with existing security arrangements.
