XtreemOS (discontinuted)

XtreemOS was an E.U. research project (IP project #IST-FP6-033576 under the FP6 program). It aimed to build an operating system for Grid computing.  The main particularity of XtreemOS is that it provides for Grids what a traditional operating system offers for a single computer: hardware transparency and secure resource sharing between different users.

Within XtreemOS, the Globule team worked on resource selection and on network transparency techniques.

The XtreemOS project is now finished. You may want to take a look at its successor, called Contrail.
