Ian Foster comments on the addition of RAVI to the dev.globus community

The Remote Application Virtualization Infrastructure, RAVI, leverages the Introduce system to provide GUI-based tools to guide a user through the process of identifying an application, mapping from strongly typed Web Services operations to application arguments, defining authentication and authorization requirements, and deploying a service onto an execution site.

I find this interesting as one of the pieces of plumbing that being dedicated to make HPC more accessible in the way that IU’s recently announced Gateways project does, or our own User Interface Toolkit does in the DoD.
