EDGI Desktop Grids are now officially D-Grid Resources

The Technical Advisory Board of the D-Grid GmbH - the major coordination instance of grid infrastructures in Germany, partner of the German National Grid Initiative - has officially approved to allow any German computing center to provide EDGI D-Grids as a D-Grid UNICORE computing resource. Therewith effectively any German scientist can use Desktop Grid resources as the other Service Grid resources, because of the transparency of the UNICORE extension. EDGI Desktop Grids have still to be provided inside the D-Grid security environment; but this will be coming soon.
