Description

Collaboration among universities, businesses, and the US government is essential to the success of the Internet 2 Initiative. However, face-to-face meetings are not always possible. The Access Grid provides the Internet 2 with the resources to enable remote collaboration among the research community. This effort extends the Alliance Computational Grid, a distributed high-speed computing environment that supports seamless resource integration and access (mcRae, 1997). The Access Grid effort has advanced audio and video applications and has increased Internet 2 collaboration.
