Description:VisualGrid: On-Line Video Streaming for Application Control and Demonstration
Abstract:Grid technology, based on opens standards and protocols, is the technology which allows user to share a wide heterogeneous of distributed computational resources such us: supercomputers, storage systems, data resources and instruments, regardless of their geographical location. The new paradigm introduced by this new technology has become extremely important for many scientific and industrial applications belonging to different domains such as Astronomy, Computational Chemistry, Earth Science, Financial Simulation, High Energy Physics and Biomedicine as well. In this scenario, today we have an increasing set of grid applications, especially those producing complex output patterns after a long run (e.g. Fluent), which can be easily shown to a wide audience and monitored with the strong impact of multimedia communication. In this paper the technical details of the VisualGrid on-line streaming tool to address this goal is shown.
