Using Grid Middleware to Query a Heterogeneous Distributed Version of the SDSS Database
This paper explores the use of Grid technologies for the manipulation of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) database. The paper first provides background information on the SDSS database, OGSA-DAI operations and OGSA-DQP ...
Experiences Running OGSA-DQP Queries against a Heterogeneous Distributed Scientific Database
This paper explores the use of emerging Grid technologies for the manipulation of a scientific dataset with complex schema. We focus on the potential of a well-known grid middleware-OGSA-DQP-for querying such datasets. In ...
Supporting Complex Scientific Database Schemas in a Grid Middleware
The volume of digital scientific data has increased considerably with advancing technologies of computing devices and scientific instruments. We are exploring the use of emerging Grid technologies for the management and ...
A Grid-Based Distributed Database Solution for Large Astronomy Datasets
The volume of digital astronomical data is set to expand dramatically over the next ten years, as new satellites, telescopes and instruments come online. For example, both the VISTA and DES programmes will yield databases ...
