Q. What is it OGF?
A. The Open Grid Forum (OGF) is a community of users, developers, and vendors leading the global standardization effort for grid computing. The OGF community consists of thousands of individuals in industry and research, representing over 400 organizations in more than 50 countries.
The OGF community works to accelerate adoption of grid computing worldwide because it believes grids will lead to new discoveries, new opportunities, and better business practices.

The work of OGF is carried out through community-initiated working groups, which develop standards and specifications in cooperation with other leading standards organizations, software vendors, and users. OGF is funded through its Organizational Members, including technology companies and academic and government research institutions. OGF hosts several events each year to further develop grid-related specifications and use cases and to share best practices.


Q. What is it WBEM?
A. WBEM: Web Based Enterprise Management
Web-Based Enterprise Management is a set of management and Internet standard technologies developed to unify the management of distributed computing environments. WBEM provides the ability for the industry to deliver a well-integrated set of standard-based management tools, facilitating the exchange of data across otherwise disparate technologies and platforms.


Q. What is it OpenPegasus?
A. OpenPegasus is an open-source implementationof the DMTF CIM and WBEM standards. It is designed to be portable and highly modular. It is coded in C++ so that it effectively translates the object concepts of the CIM objects into a programming model but still retains the speed and efficiency of a compiled language. Pegasus is designed to be inherently portable and builds and runs today on most versions of UNIX(R), Linux, OpenVMS, and Microsoft Windows.


Q. What is it CIMPLE?
A. CIMPLE is a CIM provider engine. It offers a complete environment for developing providers and an interface for invoking them from other applications. CIMPLE is used to:
(1) build providers that work with a variety CIM servers,
(2) provide a foundation for implementing CIM-based standards, such as WBEM, SMASH, WSDM, and WSManagement.
CIMPLE has three major advantages over conventional provider technologies. First, it substantially
reduces the provider development lifecycle. Second, providers can be written once for a wide range of CIM servers. Third, CIMPLE has a very small footprint.
