Did I miss something? Was a tongue planted in cheek with this reply?
As far as I know there are very few web interfaces to running SGE (or
LSF, or ...) jobs. If I am wrong please do provide links/references.
Globus is not a web interface (last I checked), but a large group of
middleware to manage something that looks a lot closer to the definition
of a grid than SGE. SGE is a job scheduler (with a name "engineered" to
make you think it is a one-stop-shop as a grid-in-a-box).
My company is interested in (and we are developing) web portals for end
user cluster work, so if you know of any, we would like to hear about
them. Good open-source platforms that are current/supported could be
worth looking at (and will save us time/development effort). There seem
to be lots of bits of abandonware in the grid portal/user-interface
area. We don't want to re-invent wheels, but at the same time, we don't
want to adopt abandoned ones either.
