The GridKa School 2011 offers a broad range of Grid-related topics which are chosen from the realm of different projects such as the Initiative for Globus in Europe (IGE). It takes place from 5th to 9th September in Karlsruhe, Germany. IGE will conduct a one day Globus workshop on Wednesday, 7th September. The Globus workshop from last year, conducted also by F. Zrenner, received the “best workshop” award.

This workshop targets Grid users and administrators and is divided into two sessions, a lecture and a hands-on session. The lecture will provide a short introduction to Grid computing with Globus and will focus on the Globus Toolkit 5 (GT5) with special emphasis on the new Globus Online service. During the hands-on session, each participant will configure the following grid services while using a pre-configured virtual machine:

  • Authentication and Authorisation (AA)
  • Proxy Certificates and MyProxy
  • Interactive Login via command line and Java GSI-SSHTerm
  • Data Services - gridFTP
  • Globus Online - Hands-on: Use Globus Online to transfer data
  • Job Submission
