ExcelGrid is a tool that helps in extending Microsoft Excel from the desktop to enterprise and global Grids as they provide the benefits of improved job execution speed and result in getting processing done faster. It provides a front-end to a Grid via Excel spreadsheet and performs user-defined computations on enterprise Grids created using Alchemi and global Grids built using Gridbus coupled with Globus, UNICORE and also Alchemi technologies. It allows users to run jobs on remote computers, using an easy-to-use GUI, and retrieve the results via the standard Excel spreadsheet interface
The ExcelGrid plug-in is developed by the Gridbus Project, Grid Computing and Distributed Systems (GRIDS) Lab, Dept. of Computer Science and Software Engineering, the University of Melbourne, Australia. The project is partially supported by Australian Research Council Discovery Project grant, Storage Technology and the University of Melbourne.
