OGF Spec Makes Grids Interoperable
The Open Grid Forum (OGF) announced its High Performance Computing (HPC) Basic Profile specification will be adopted in product releases planned by several commercial providers including Microsoft, Altair and Platform Computing. The HPC Basic Profile will enable users of MicrosoftÃ¢â¬â¢s WindowÃ¢â¬â¢s HPC Server 2008, AltairÃ¢â¬â¢s PBS Professional and Platform LSF products to achieve interoperability and manage resources across multi-site, multi-vendor grids. The profile also will be implemented in open source software running some of the worldÃ¢â¬â¢s largest production grids in North America, Europe and Asia.
