Standards for Grid Computing: Global Grid Forum

  • Charlie Catlett


Formed in 1999, Global Grid Forum (GGF) is an international organization focused on the development of common practices, agreements, and specifications that will promote interoperability and reuse of Grid technologies. To this end, GGF supports a recommendations process modeled after the Internet Standards Process and carried out through working groups. To ensure that the recommendations process operates with understanding about both research directions and end user requirements, GGF also operates a set of research groups. Finally, GGF supports a set of educational and informational activities designed to support and expand the community of Grid developers, researchers, practitioners and end-users.
