Grid portals build upon the familiar Web portal model to offer virtual communities of users a single point of access to computational resources. The Grid Portlets web application, developed by the GridSphere Project, builds upon the core features in the GridSphere Portal Framework to provide developers with a framework for developing Grid portals.
