NMM (Network-Integrated Multimedia Middleware) is a flow graph based multimedia framework. NMM allows a programmer to create distributed multimedia applications: local and remote multimedia devices or software components can be controlled transparently and integrated into a common multimedia processing flow graph. NMM is a set of cross-platform libraries and applications. A software development kit (SDK) is also provided.
The Pegasus Workflow Management System encompasses a set of technologies which help workflow-based applications execute in a number of different environments, including desktops, campus clusters, grids, and clouds. It bridges the scientific domain and the execution environment by automatically mapping high-level workflow descriptions onto distributed resources. It automatically locates the necessary input data and computational resources necessary for workflow execution. It enables scientists to construct workflows in abstract terms without worrying about the details of the underlying execution environment or the particulars of the low-level specifications required by the middleware (Condor, Globus, or Amazon EC2). It bridges the current cyberinfrastructure by effectively coordinating multiple distributed resources.
