  1. A lecture "Interoperation between production grids using high-level environment" was given during Cracow Grid Workshop'10
  2. On SC2009 conference, an exhibition of Pionier, FZJ, EGEE/EGI and EPCC, between 17th and 19th November, will present how can Kepler environment be used to mix HPC and grid jobs and execute them in parallel
  3. Migrating Desktop tutorial is ported to our wiki. You can always navigate there for the latest version

It's about USER

The aim of the Migrating Desktop is to provide scientists with a framework which hides the details of most Grid services and allows for setting up and interactively controlling complex systems. We provide a graphical user interface that integrates and makes use of number of middleware that enables user interaction with the application.


The Migrating Desktop framework allows the user to access the Grid resources, run interactive applications, monitoring and visualization, and manage data files. MD provides a front-end framework for embedding some of the application mechanisms and interfaces, and allows the user to have virtual access to Grid resources from other computational nodes.


The general idea of the Migrating Desktop was to provide containers - frameworks for plug-ins written by application developers. Such approach allows increasing functionality in an easy way without the need of architecture changes.

It's about GRID

The Migrating Desktop is a front end to The Roaming Access Server (RAS), which intermediates to communication with different grid middleware and applications. The Roaming Access Server offers a well-defned set of web-services that can be used as an interface for accessing HPC systems and services (based on various technologies) in a common and standardised way. All communication bases on web services technology.
