Wow!!! A Job Catalog for The Sun Grid!!!
By gkrish on Mar 12, 2007
The wait is over!!!! Network.com has more to it now !!!
I caught Google scanning/indexing/crawling (whatever you call it) network.com when the site was being upgraded! Have a look!
Well, network.com now has a new feature - The Job Catalog
The Job or Application Catalog is a venue where ISV And Open Source Applications can be easily accessed. An example is the application 'POVRay', a ray tracer. This sample application comes by default as part of the Job Catalog when you request a Sun Grid Account in NETWORK.COM. Also, do not forget the 10$ CPU-hr you get to try out this application and more!!!
\* Use Sun as your one-stop application shop
\* Easy Access to the applications you use in an on-demand enviornment
\* Plug Into Sun's Infrastructure, Use the applications on an as-needed basis
Steps to access the applications from the Job Catalog
1. Check out the job from the Job Catalog
2. Click on 'View Details' of the checked out job to see the instructions that will provide information how to use the application, how to provide your input data etc.
3. Edit the Job and add any additional data resource if any as per Step 2.
4. Save and Run the Job!
There you go!!! Let the job run. You can start running your other jobs till then!!!
The network is truly becoming the computer!!!
