Statistic of the Week - 318

For those new to grid computing, or those who wonder what happened to all the real words, the Enabling Grids for E-sciencE glossary can provide a ready guide to the acronyms and keywords that pop up in almost every grid-related sentence. The glossary defines 318 acronyms.

The EGEE project, now in its fourth year, was reviewed by an independent panel nominated by the European Commission at CERN in Switzerland last week. Presumably the reviewers didn’t have too much of a problem sorting their GUIs from their GILDAs: their preliminary comments were very positive.

“Anyone involved in EGEE had very high expectations, and we haven’t been disappointed,” said one of the reviewers. “Overall we assessed the project as performing excellently.”
