Abstract

The Grid appliance allows nanoHUB users to run a development "virtual workspace" in their own desktop. The workspace has a Linux-based virtual machine with Rappture, WebDAV and Condor pre-installed and pre-configured, encapsulating conveniently all the software needed to run these applications, right out of the box. With the Grid appliance, nanoHUB users can:

  • contribute idle computing cycles from their desktop to the nanoHUB
  • tap into the computing cycles of nanoHUB Grid resources by using Condor
  • easily develop Rappture-based tools

To run the appliance, you need 1) an Intel-based Linux or Windows computer, 2) download and install free virtual machine software (VMware’s VMPlayer or Server), and 3) download and unzip the appliance (280MB) from http://www.grid-appliance.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=59&Itemid=66

Please refer to the attached Breeze presentation with introductory information on the appliance and a tutorial video for more information and instructions.
