Globus development began in 1996 as an effort to provide the scientific community with a set of tools and services for building distributed applications. Thanks to the recent NSF award for the Community Driven Improvement of Globus Software (CDIGS), developers from the University of Chicago and University of Southern California are able to continue contributing to Globus development.
CDIGS project goals:
- Evolve and enhance Globus functionality, performance, scalability and robustness
- Improve usability and manageability so as to decrease the cost and complexity of deploying, operating and using Globus infrastructure
- Support major NSF users and communities
- Expand the Globus community
