Abstract
3DGeo will implement a graphical user interface (GUI) built on top of the Globus Toolkit 3.0 (GT3) middleware and complying with the Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI) standard. This GUI will be a convenient interface for computational resource discovery, computational resource monitoring, and workflow submission to the Grid. These features will be built into 3DGeo?s Java-based INSP system - a generic interface for scientific computing, applicable to any compute task. With this innovation, INSP Explorer will become a window to the Grid, allowing transparent submission of computationally intensive jobs to the Grid rather than to individual compute servers. This essential productivity tool will free the end-user from the burden of searching for compute resources or from explicitly splitting up large computational tasks between compute servers, thereby allowing the user to focus on the scientific aspects of his task. 3DGeo?s first commercial application of this technology will be in the seismic imaging market, an industry that is a natural fit for Grid usage because of its specific requirements for large processing capacity and large data storage requirements ? which is exactly what the Grid (and OGSI) are designed for.
