BeSTGRID (Broadband enabled Science and Technology GRID) is a NZ Tertiary Education Commission Innovation and Development Fund project which builds true eResearch capability on the new Kiwi Advanced Research and Education Network. BeSTGRID will deliver mechanisms, methods and tools that facilitate collaboration on shared information, sharing of computational resources and online visualization of instruments and experiments. There is an emphasis on developing virtual research environments for exemplars in international collaboration through the use of technologies such as EVO, AccessGRID, JSR168 Portlets, SAKAI, Shibboleth, Globus, and SRB. The project is also largely following the Australian Partnership for Advanced Computing GRID architecture to facilitate possible future interoperability. BeSTGRID focuses on how to make eResearch work, to create a fully-functional eResearch ecosystem for New Zealand.
