[GE users] submit jobs between clusters

UC Grid was written to work with a web portal, but it can 
work on the command line too.  Basically,
a) It needs a MyProxy server to lease short lived credential 
(X-509) for the users.
b) On both clusters the username should be added to the 
Globus grid-mapfile.
c) There should be a node (grid appliance) on the cluster 
where Globus Toolkit is installed which is a submission host 
for SGE scheduler.
d) The jobs are submitted to Globus GRAM and the files are 
transferred back and forth using GridFTP.

It is also a single sign on concept for multiple clusters 
just like other grid based portals.  Latest version of UC 
Grid can also work from Iphone, Ipad and Android based 
phones using Globus Toolkit and RESTful web services.  UC 
Grid is also a Globus Incubator project.  Some grid portals 
(like Teragrid) use GSI-ssh  to have direct ssh access from 
the web and some use VNC to initiate ssh sessions to open 
interactive sessions.  It is not easy, but it is doable. :-) 
  Everything we do is open source also.  :-)
