PROGRESS stands for "Polish Research On GRid Environment for Sun Servers". It started as a grant co-financed by the Polish State Committee for Scientifc Research and Sun Microsystems Poland. The grant involved three research institutions: Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Center, Academic Computer Centre Cyfronet AGH Kraków and Technical University of £ód¼ and lasted since December 2001 until December 2003. It resulted in a set of grid-portal environment tools that have been made available for use in the form of open source software packages and the PROGRESS HPC Portal testbed deployment. The PROGRESS HPC Portal testbed is a subject to continuous development and extentsions as new functionality is added to the middleware, new resources are added to the hardware infrastructure and new applications are being enabled on the grid.

This site is prepared and maintained by Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Center. It reviews the grant work and achievements, presents the PROGRESS HPC Portal testbed and describes the software which originates from the grant and has been designed and developed in PSNC.
