g-Eclipse - Tools for Grid and Cloud Computing
g-Eclipse is a framework that allows users and developers to access arbitrary computing infrastructures. What was called Grid computing a few years ago is now called Cloud computing. The differences between the two approaches are not so big, but both infrastructures come with the challenge to access the resources in a unified way. That is what g-Eclipse provides.
The g in the name comes from Grid, but the g-Eclipse framework itself is independent from a certain Grid infrastructure or Cloud Computing provider.
The g-Eclipse project maintains a set of connectors to Grid middlewares and provides an adapter to the Amazon webservices EC2 and S3.
g-Eclipse Core Repository
This is the main Git repository with the core components of the g-Eclipse Project. It includes the core libraries and connectors to AWS EC2 and S3.
The Git repository has been migrated from the original Subversion repository hosted at eclipse.org at http://dev.eclipse.org/svnroot/technology/eu.geclipse.
