Using EELA resources: The SegHidro/BRAMS experience

submitted by: elianearaujo
This video describes our project experience on using EELA resources in conjunction with OurGrid resources to provide a better performance to SegHidro/BRAMS application. SegHidro enables, through a grid portal, collaborative work via the coupling of hydrometeorological computer models, providing access to massive grid-based computer resources such as data storage nodes and computing nodes. BRAMS is a Regional Atmospheric Modeling System that provides SegHidro users with weather forecasts to...
