"Easing Application Execution in Grids with XtreemOS Operating System"

This tutorial presents XtreemOS Grid system from the user point of view. Its goal is to show why XtreemOS is a system of choice for Grid users who want to easily execute their applications while taking advantage of advanced features for job management. We show what can be done with XtreemOS with regards to application execution, how it can be done and how the available features are implemented. Demonstrations will be presented throughout the tutorial.

Target audience: Grid users, Grid application developers, Grid system and middleware designers

Session leaders: Christine Morin (INRIA), Yvon Jégou (INRIA), Toni Cortes (BSC), Michael Schöttner (Heinrich-Heine Universität Düsseldorf)

Flashback: XtreemOS at OGF24

Open Grid Forum

We presented and demonstrated XtreemOS at OGF24 in Singapore, which was
co-located with GridAsia 2008 this time (September 15-19, 2008).

OGF24 - Singapore

At our booth, we had info material about XtreemOS and XtreemFS and a poster stand. The booth produced some interest in XtreemOS; about 30 visitors came around and informed themselves, mainly from the area around Singapore, but also from the US, Europe and other places.

We are confident that the booth helped us to promote XtreemOS and to make it more visible to the rest of the world.
