Grid computer fund ideas sought

Grid computer fund ideas sought

The Ministry of Research, Science and Technology in Wellington is seeking proposals from groups on how best to use grid computer funding of $840,000.

According to request for proposal documents released this week, the Ministry received the funds to develop capability within the Kiwi Advanced Research and Education Network (KAREN). The money will be used for a national grid infrastructure.

Grid computing is a form of distributed computing where a super computer is created from a cluster of networked, loosely-coupled computers, acting in concert to perform large processing tasks. Grid computing is made possible by the high-speed connections available through KAREN.

The deadline for replies is December 12. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 24292.
