DragonHead.jpgWe have to thank Jason Lander for his description of the Institute:

"The Software Sustainability Institute knows its way around the grid. Their developers know how to deal with complicated software. It takes more than a Here Be Dragons warning to stop them..."

Jason's been looking at the Workload Management Systems (WMS) used by the NGS. Before he began his study, Jason said "In a corner of my mental map of the Grid world is the WMS... Next to it is a warning: Here Be Dragons." The WMS has run into a few problems recently, some of which originate with software called SARoNGS and it is here that we are helping. We've been working with the NGS to investigate SARoNGS, understand the problems and solve them.

If you're interested in Workload Management Systems, read Jason's post on the NGS blog.
