Dear visitor, this page is completely outdated (Sept 2001), but remains here for strictly historical reasons and also since I haven't had time to transfer what useful information still exists to our new site http://easygrid.ic.uff.br.
CLUSTER AND GRID COMPUTING GROUP'S
PROJECT: EASY GRID AND CLUSTER SYNERGIA
Two new paradigms are changing the way we do computing: Clusters and Grids. Both have been born by the need for more economical means for high-performance computing. Clusters employ cost-effective commodity components for building powerful computers, and Grids allow to better utilize the computing resources that are available via Internet.
EasyGrid (IC-Grid in portuguese) is a mini-grid testbed environment for the design and development of grid-based middleware. Two Beowulf class PC clusters, Cluster Sinergia I and II, are under construction in the Instituto de Computação, UFF, with the aim of studying the interaction between cluster- and grid-based middleware.
