Did I miss something?  Was a tongue planted in cheek with this reply?

As far as I know there are very few web interfaces to running SGE (or 
LSF, or ...) jobs.  If I am wrong please do provide links/references.

Globus is not a web interface (last I checked), but a large group of 
middleware to manage something that looks a lot closer to the definition 
of a grid than SGE.  SGE is a job scheduler (with a name "engineered" to 
make you think it is a one-stop-shop as a grid-in-a-box).

My company is interested in (and we are developing) web portals for end 
user cluster work, so if you know of any, we would like to hear about 
them.  Good open-source platforms that are current/supported could be 
worth looking at (and will save us time/development effort).  There seem 
to be lots of bits of abandonware in the grid portal/user-interface 
area.  We don't want to re-invent wheels, but at the same time, we don't 
want to adopt abandoned ones either.
