GRAM is a Globus project that produces technologies which enable users to locate, submit, monitor and cancel remote jobs on Grid-based compute resources. GRAM enables remote execution management in contexts for which reliable operation, stateful monitoring, credential management, and file staging are important. GRAM is not a job scheduler. Rather, it provides a single protocol for communicating with different batch/cluster job schedulers.
The GRAM project is a contributor to the Globus Toolkit distribution.
This GlobDev project webpage contains information for project committers and contributors. Information for users of GRAM can be found under the "Execution Management" sections of the Globus Toolkit user web.
The GRAM release schedule is aligned with the Globus Toolkit release schedule.
A new improved version of a GRAM2 compatible service is in development. The focus of the improvements target a long known problem with GRAM2, scalability. Also, we are moving to component releases for GRAM to provide more timely releases and updates. We foresee releasing a series of alphas and betas in order to harden this new version to culminate in a stable GRAM only release. We are calling this new version - GRAM5 (GRAM V5.x.x).
GRAM5 component releases and details are here: http://dev.globus.org/wiki/GRAM/GRAM5
