Abstract

We report on user experiences gathered with quantum nuclear scattering calculations on a H2O based metacomputing system and on the BEgrid, the Belgian EGEE Grid infrastructure. We compare quantifiable aspects such as Grid utilization but also ease-of-use and the experience encountered in porting the application to each of the Grid environments.
