Title: Collaborative working - from HPC, Vis to AG developments in Australia
Author(s): Pailthorpe, Bernard
Keywords: APSR
Australian Partnership for Sustainable Repositories
The large distances that we face in Australia mean that electronically enabled remote collaborations are gaining traction. The Access Grid (AG), for multi-site, room-to-room meetings and collaborative working, is now widely used in the university sector. Decades of R&D and infrastructure building in High Performance Computing (HPC), cyber-infrastructure and now e-infrastructure, have led to a rich fabric of distributed computing, data and user interface technologies in Australia. We will present recent AG developments including shared files systems based on the Storage Resource Broker (SRB), shared software applications (eg molecular viewers, GIS) and High Definition Video capabilities, all integrated within the AG systems. These systems now provide a richer collaborative working environment for accessing e-infrastructure facilities.
