HPC Basic Profile Overview
Rich Ciapala from the Windows HPC team has posted a good overview of the work they've been doing on the HPC Basic Profile...
The HPC Basic Profile is a proposed Open Grid Forum (OGF) interoperability specification for job submission and management between HPC systems including batch job schedulers. It is based on existing specifications including the WS-I Basic Profile, the WS-I Basic Security Profile, Web Services Addressing, the Job Submission Language and the Basic Execution Service. This entry gives a high level overview of the profile. More detailed information can be found in the HPC Basic Profile specification (which is entering public comment) and the dependent specifications mentioned later in this entry. Since the profile is still open for feedback, the contents of this entry are subject to change.
