There are web interfaces to SGE, and there are web interfaces to grids ...
I think the important aspect of this is the marketing use of the term
"Grid" in a name.
Way back in high school, they used to teach us that what was in a
name was exactly opposite of what it really was... A bit cynical, but
amazingly effective at cutting through marketing.
Globus is glue. Middleware. There are portals atop globus. SGE
(despite its name) is a job scheduler. As is LSF. And others.
The short version of things are that in order to get a web interface to
SGE, one need not go through the joy of Globus, especially as Globus will
not in and of itself get you where you want to go.
GridPort I knew of. The other I did not.
