Submit jobs to the EDGeS@Home desktop grid

If you can connect to a Virtual Organisation that runs the gLite middleware, you can submit jobs to the EDGeS@Home Desktop Grid..

EDGeS@Home is a volunteer desktop grid with tens-of-thousands computers connected. It can be used to run applications from EGI connected Virtual Organisations.

You need the following steps:

  1. Are you connected to a Service Grid (for instance EGI) that runs gLite. And is your application running there.
  2. Is your application suited for a Desktop Grid? Is an implementation available for a Desktop Grid
  3. Your Virtual Organisation VO has to be connected to EDGeS@Home using Bridge technology
