14:15-15:00: “GridGain – Java Grid Computing Made Simple”
Speaker: Nikita Ivanov, Founder GridGain Systems Duration: 45minutes Language: English
Abstract: This presentation is intended to provide a high level overview on GridGain– an open source Java grid computing framework. Presentation is arranged to provide both the canonical overview of the software framework and live coding demonstration underscoring powerful simplicity of the GridGain. Presentation is split into approximately two equal parts: * In first part the formal introduction to GridGain and computational grid computing is provided. Different types of
grid computing will be briefly discussed as well as the key features that GridGain provides * In the second part the live coding example will be shown .demonstrating building and running the grid application from scratch in front of the audience. This demonstration will highlight one of the key advantages of using GridGain - simple and transparent grid enabling of existing applications using Java annotations.
15:10-15:45 Grid Computing – The Simpsons, Shrek3 and helps Keep the Lights On
Speaker: Mike Duffy, Founder CEO of Axceleon
Duration: 35minutes Language: English
I wanted to speak to how Grid Computing is used in 2 very interesting and important industries, the Hollywood Movie Business and The Power/Energy Area. Without the ability to build these and utilize large compute grids the movie industry would not be able to generate these large special effects movies like the Transformers, Shrek, Simpsons etc. The Electrical Generation companies around the world are looking to “grid computing” to not only save the money but also increase the reliability of their electrical grids across the world.
