Project Description

DILIGENT project aims to support a new research operational mode by providing a knowledge infrastructure that manages a network of shared resources (e.g., archives, database, software tools) and enables the creation of on-demand digital libraries. By exploiting this infrastructure a virtual research group will be able to dynamically create a digital library that satisfies its needs by specifying a number of requirements on the information space and on the services. A reliable and secure digital library that satisfies the given requirements will be transparently instantiated and made accessible to authorized users through a portal. Many digital libraries, serving different virtual research groups, will be active on the same resources at the same time.

The DILIGENT infrastructure, which will build upon the efforts of the EGEE project (IST-2003-508833), will serve many different research and industrial applications and will be demonstrated and validated by two complementary real-life application scenarios.

Site Objectives

The goal of these TWiki pages is to expose to the DILIGENT community the following information:

  • technical description of the gLite middleware, its architecture, status, etc.
  • overall description of the DILIGENT architecture.
  • organize the feedback given to EGEE - requirements, participation in workgroups, bugs, requests for support, etc.
  • explain the experimentation activities carried out with gLite
  • describe the DILIGENT infrastructures - their layout, status and history.
