To make OurGrid a reality demands a great deal of research effort, most of which has been made by the Distributed System Laboratory of the Federal University of Campina Grande, Brazil. This has been possible thanks to the cooperation between the HP Brazil R&D and the LSD; a cooperation that began in 2003. The LSD and the UFCG are grateful to the HP Brazil for the financial support provided through the benefits granted by the Brazilian "".
The success of OurGrid has also made it an interesting system for other research groups to validate their ideas – which have been developed either in cooperation with the OurGrid original creators, or independently. Moreover, as a tool, OurGrid has enabled people to do research (not necesserily in Computer Science) that would not have been possible (or at least would be far more costly) before.
Should you want an overview of the system, the best paper to read is Labs of the World, Unite!!!, published in 2006 in the Journal of Grid Computing. The paper highlights which users would benefit the most from OurGrid, bringing into discussion the underlying principles that have been taken into account when designing and implementing the system. For an overview of the current state of affairs and highlights on future directions, please have a look at the Developer's Corner Section.
