Summary     : Advanced Resource Connector Grid Middleware
Description :
NorduGrid is a collaboration aiming at development, maintenance and
support of the free Grid middleware, known as the Advanced Resource
Connector (ARC).

The Advanced Resource Connector (ARC) brings computing resources
together across institutional boundaries. This concept is commonly
referred to as a "computational grid". Historically, grids address the
organization of distributed storage of data and parallel computation,
but arbitrary services are thinkable.

Just like the web, ARC has its roots in the IT infrastructure that was
erected to analyze the experiments for high energy physics at CERN.
The first release, ARC-0.x, was dependent on Globus, the current
release keeps that compatibility but can also be used independently.

With ARC, the user gains flexibility with additional services and more
supported platforms. The service developer notices that even for
persistent functionality across the two major versions, what has been
a script on the server side once, that was repeatedly started and ran
through, this has now become a service. Those are only started once
and can then be queried, which is far more efficient, far more
responsive, and is no longer stateless but can observe changes of
values over time.
