IGT Offices, Maskit 4, 5th Floor, Hertzliya
Agenda:
14:00-14:15: OPENING - Avner & Guy
14:15-14:50: PPF, JAVA, OPEN-SOURCE AND GRID: BEYOND THE TRADITIONAL GRID
Speaker: Laurent Cohen, ILOG, Inc. and JPPF founder
Abstract:

Traditional Grid architectures rely on a concept of job submission that comes with a set of constraints regarding the nature of the compute nodes, the ease of deployment of the jobs, and the effort required to use the Grid, which could otherwise be utilized to work on the problems to solve. JPPF offers an alternative, enabling a true heterogeneous nature of the Grid components, an ease of use that permits engineers, developers and scientists to focus on their domain rather than on the grid infrastructure, while retaining the benefits of the Grid technology to solve heavy and complex computational problems.We will present how the design and architectural choices in JPPF, in terms of programming language…
