fura ( Grid Middleware ) / News: Recent posts

Packaged Fura available on Amazon's cloud

Since August 2009, the Fura project will not include the source packages. The project is still maintained through the CVS repository. You can get the last version of Fura from there. You will have to download the files, compile them, and install them.

If you want to try Fura, without compiling nor installing it , you can do so by accessing it in the cloud. Visit www.gridsystems.com for further information.

Fura web site reborn

We have been working hard these days in preparing our code for generating a complete technical web site for this project.
