[Beowulf] SGE web frontends

Open Source GridPort (www.gridport.net) merits consideration. It interfaces with SGE, LSF, PBS, etc., via Globus.

And NICE EnginFrame (http://www.enginframe.com) is a commercial offering which already has customizations for the Life Sciences.

For the record, we provide our own Web GUI with Platform LSF, and make use of these portals as required.

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.
