The GridLab project is one of the biggest European research undertakings in the development of application tools and middleware for Grid environments. GridLab produces a set of application-oriented Grid services and toolkits providing capabilities such as dynamic resource brokering, monitoring, data management, security, information, adaptive services and more. Services are accessed using the Grid Application Toolkit (GAT). The GAT provides applications with access to various GridLab services, resources, specific libraries, tools, etc. in a way that the end-users and especially application developers can build and run applications on the Grid without needing to know details about the runtime environment in advance. Applications use the GAT through a fixed GAT API.
Grid APIs GAT is a set of coordinated, generic and flexible APIs for accessing Grid services from e.g. generic application codes, portals, data managements systems, together with working implementations provided by the tools developed in the GridLab project. GAT is designed in a modular plug-and-play manner, such that tools developed anywhere can be plugged into GAT.

GridSphere The Gridsphere portal framework provides an open-source portlet based Web portal. GridSphere enables developers to quickly develop and package third-party portlet web applications that can be run and administered within the GridSphere portlet container. Below, you will find the GridSphere portal framework available for download and documentation related to the installation and development of portlets using GridSphere.

Time to speed up GRMS is a job scheduling and resource management framework, which allows users to build and deploy job and resource management systems for Grids. Based on dynamic resource discovery and selection, mapping and advanced scheduling methodologies, combined with a feedback control architecture and support from other GridLab middleware services such as adaptive components, monitoring, data management, etc. GRMS deals with a dynamic Grid environment and even complex workflow management challenges. Therefore, the main goal of GRMS is to manage securely and efficiently the whole process of remote job submission and control to various remote systems belonging to many different, geographically distributed domains.

How far can you go without GAS Currently, one of the main security problems within grid environments is lack of mechanisms for defining and implementing grid security policies. It results mainly from the general complexity of securing open network environments. However, it is also meaningful that grid technologies are relatively new and solutions to many core problems have not been found yet. Therefore, as the general field of grid security lacks sufficient standards or often even specifications, any security service, in order to be applicable in practice, must be able to cooperate with various solutions. In order to deal with this problem an appropriate authorization service has to be introduce... GridLab Authorization Service (GAS) has been designed to provide functionality that would be able to fulfill most authorization requirements of grid computing environments. GAS is designed as a trusted single logical point for defining security policy for complex grid infrastructures and Virtual Organizations. As the flexibility is a key requirement, it is to be able to implement various security scenarios, based on push or pull models, simultaneously.

iGrid is a novel Grid Information Service. Among iGrid requirements there are performance, scalability, security, decentralized control, support for dynamic data and the possibility to handle user supplied information. The iGrid Information Service has been specified and carefully designed to meet these requirements.

The Mercury Grid Monitoring System provides a general and extensible grid monitoring infrastructure. Mercury Monitor is designed to satisfy specific requirements of grid performance monitoring it provides monitoring data represented as metrics via both pull and push model data access semantics and also supports steering by controls. It supports monitoring of grid entities such as resources and applications in a generic, extensible and scalable way.

The advantage of using Delphoi is that it allows its users to ask simple questions like "how long will it take to transfer my file", or "how long will my job have to wait before it runs". Delphoi takes care if all the complex details of gathering and storing the necessary information, and performing the complex calculations needed to answer these questions.

At the heart of any Grid is data. Data is injected by simulations and experiments, stored in archives for later retrieval, analyzed and transformed by computing processes, and transferred to the user for display and manipulation. GridLab's Data Access and Management provides the infrastructure to efficiently manage and transfer large data sets in the Grid. The core of GridLab Data Management infrastructure is the following set of services: the Replica Catalogue for tracking and organizing the Grid filespace, File Service for providing efficient data transfer and StorageBox for data archival and registry.
