Are you a open source developer who has created a cool application and want to give it enhanced visibility? Are you a research scientist lacking the infrastructure and service-provider know-how to run complex applications? Welcome to Sun Grid ! Additional features were announced for Network.com adding muscle to the already cool pay per use utility offering which would enable end users to tap into high performance computing (HPC), enterprise applications and infrastructure for complex computations as a service.
From creating your own application for Sun Grid to publishing the application for other end users (making some bounty in the process if you choose to do so), Sun Grid would also enable you to instantly access popular ISV and open source applications on a pay-per-use basis. You can choose an already existing application in the Catalog, or you can create and publish your own application.(A how to is available here).
Some resources for Sun Grid users:
