The Internet Engineering Task Force is the task force of the Internet Architecture Board (IAB) that is responsible for solving the short-term engineering needs of the Internet. The IETF consists of numerous working groups, each focused on a particular problem. Internet standards are typically developed or reviewed by individual working groups before they can become standards.
An aggregator service in WS MDS that serves as a registry similar to UDDI, but much more flexible. Indexes collect information and publish that information as WSRF resource properties.
InfiniBand is the next generation switch fabric architecture that enables increased network bandwidth (10Gbps), redundant connectivity support, shared resources, lower CPU utilization, and use of industry standard (vs. proprietary) components. InfiniBand technology can be used to connect servers with remote storage, networking devices, and other servers. It can also be used inside servers for inter-processor communication (IPC) in clusters. www.infinibandta.org
A "helper" software component that collects or formats resource information, for use in WS MDS by an aggregator source or by a WSRF service when creating resource properties.
An instance is the AWS version of a server. They come in a variety of sizes small, large, and extra-large and are designed to provide predictable and dedicated computing power on demand. Amazon charges you directly based on instance-per-hour usage.
Once an AMI has been launched, the resulting running system is referred to as an instance. All instances based on the same AMI start out identical and any information on them is lost when the instances are terminated or fail.
also called a private cloud. A cloud computing-like environment within the boundaries of an organization.
A cloud computing-like environment within the boundaries of an organization and typically available for exclusive use by said organization.
