Abstract

The Migrating Desktop is a ready to use GUI framework for making use of grid applications and putting into practice the “application on demand” concept. On-demand computing, contrary to the traditional approach of assigning resources to applications, refers to the concept of pooling system resources and dynamically allocating them to meet shifting demands. We introduce a ready-to-use framework for the integration of different computing systems into a comfortable working environment with support for “applications on demand”. This work is done under the EU CrossGrid project IST-2001-32243.
