DCI Bridge

The DCI Bridge is a web application (sevice) that provides standard access to the distributed computing infrastructures (DCIs) like grids, desktop grids, clusters, clouds and service based computational resources by implementing the specification of the OGSA Basic Execution Service 1.0.

The DCI Bridge web application creates a transparent layer between the users (workflow systems) and the DCI systems. The user can submit jobs to the various DCI systems using the OGSA Basic Execution Service (BES) interface defined at http://www.ogf.org/documents/GFD.108.pdf.
As a result, the users do not have to learn the access protocol of the various DCI systems since they are hidden behind the BES interface.

The DCI Bridge gives support to the use of the Meta Broker which is able to choose the most ideal environment for the job from the available execution resources. The DCI Bridge will do the task in this specified environment.
