Dear friends,

A new stable release of the GridWay meta-scheduler is available for 
download under the terms of the Apache License, Version 2.0 (see below 
the release announcement).

The GridWay Metascheduler is now a dev.globus ProtoProject(*), so it 
adheres to Globus philosophy and guidelines for collaborative 
development. We invite you to subscribe the gridway-announce at globus.org 
and gridway-user at globus.org mailing lists (see 
http://www.gridway.org/support.php). GridWay is a community project, 
benefiting from code and support contributions from individuals and 
corporations around the world. The gridway-dev at globus.org mailing list 
is the forum for suggestions and comments for code changes (see 
http://www.gridway.org/software/contribute.php ).

GridWay, on top of Globus services, enables large-scale, secure, 
reliable and efficient sharing of computing resources (clusters, 
computing farms, servers, supercomputers...), managed by different DRM 
(distributed resource management) systems, such as PBS, SGE, LSF, 
Condor..., within a single organization (enterprise grid) or scattered 
across several administrative domains (partner or supply-chain grid). 
GridWay gives end users, application developers and managers of Globus 
infrastructures a scheduling functionality similar to that found on 
local DRM systems, including full support for DRMAA to develop 
distributed applications (C and JAVA bindings).

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any additional 
information.

Sincerely,

Ignacio M. Llorente

NEW STABLE RELEASE OF THE GRIDWAY META-SCHEDULER

The GridWay Project is pleased to announce that a new stable release 
(5.0) of the GridWay meta-scheduler is available for download under the 
terms of the Apache License, Version 2.0. The GridWay Metascheduler is 
now a dev.globus ProtoProject (*), so it adheres to Globus philosophy 
and guidelines for collaborative development.

ABOUT THE GRIDWAY META-SCHEDULER:

GridWay meta-scheduling technology gives end users, application 
developers and managers of Globus infrastructures a scheduling 
functionality similar to that found on local DRM (Distributed Resource

Management) systems:

- Advanced scheduling capabilities on a grid consisting of Globus 
services: dynamic discovery & selection, opportunistic migration, 
performance slowdown detection, support for self-adaptive applications 
and support for the definition of new scheduling policies

- Detection and recovery from remote and local failure situations

- DRM-like commands to submit, monitor, synchronize and control single, 
array and interdependent jobs; monitor Globus resources and users; and 
extract Grid accounting information

- Full support for C and JAVA DRMAA GGF standard for the development of 
distributed applications on Globus
services

- Straightforward deployment that does not require new services apart 
from those provided by the Globus Toolkit: MDS, GRAM, GridFTP and RFT

- Modular architecture that allows an easy incorporation of new grid 
services and interoperability between different grid infrastructures 
(Globus WS, Globus pre-WS and EGEE)

(*) GridWay is an effort undergoing incubation at Globus. Incubation is 
required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates 
that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process
have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful Globus 
projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the 
completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project 
has yet to be fully endorsed by Globus.
