This is the home page of the Grid Computing Team within the Baldridge Group in the Institute of Organic Chemistry at the University of Zurich in Switzerland. Our main topic, Grid Computing, can be defined as follows:

"A computational grid is a hardware and software infrastructure that provides dependable, consistent, pervasive, and inexpensive access to high-end computational capabilities." (Foster/Kesselman 1999)

"... coordinated resource sharing and problem solving in dynamic, multi-institutional virtual organizations." (Foster/Kesselman/Tuecke 2001)

"... a Grid is a system that: 1) coordinates resources that are not subject to centralized control ... 2) ... using standard, open, general-purpose protocols and interfaces ... 3) ... to deliver nontrivial qualities of service." (Foster 2002)

You can find here information about the Grid team, our Grid infrastructure, as well as the Grid projects we participate in. Please be aware of the disclaimer and the page about this web site.
