The PROGRESS testbed resource infrastructure accessed by the tools designed and deployed within the scope of the PROGRESS project consisted of:
This infrastructure was the base to deploy the testbed implementations of the designed grid-portal environment architecture in the form of PROGRESS HPC Portal.
The first version of the PROGRESS HPC Portal, delivered by and presented during
Supercomputing 2002 in Baltimore,
included all the modules constituting the grid-portal environment, that is an installation of the Globus
Toolkit with the Grid Resource Broker deployed upon it, the Grid Service Provider, the Data Management
System and user interfaces: the Web Portal and a Migrating Desktop application. This prototype HPC Portal
allowed to upload the input files to the grid (to the DMS), build a single-task grid job, submit it to
the grid for execution and monitor its execution, and download the results of the experiment.

The second version of the PROGRESS HPC Portal was delivered by and presented during
Supercomputing 2003 in Phoenix.
It included all the modules constituting the grid-portal environment with full functionality assumed
in the project plans. It allowed to create and execute single-task and work-flow grid jobs, to manage
the grid-enabled applications and to manage the grid data files. The Web Portal was also equipped
with visualization modules for testbed bioinformatic applications. The distributed modules of the grid
access environment were integrated within a Single Sign On model and were capable of utilizing the functionality
of a RAD-based authorization module (which was prepared by
ACC "Cyfronet" AGH).
