Virtual File System (AG + SRB)

This project is based upon the work done at the University of Queensland's VisLab.

This project aims to augment the collaborative capabilities offered by Access Grid with the Storage Resource Broker (SRB). The SRB is a middle-ware data-grid technology that provides a uniform interface to large heterogeneous data collections. With it powering the majority of data-grid projects around the world, augmenting AG with SRB allows potential access to extensive amount of existing distributed data (Figure 1).

There are several stages for the integration of the SRB technology into the Access Grid: shared application, data store service, and search service.
