This IBM Redpaper describes the early experiences of the ITSO team with the Globus Toolkit 3.0. This major Grid implementation, known as GT3, is compliant with the new Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI).

The goal of this Redpaper is to provide the critical jump-start for someone who wants to learn about GT3 but has little or no experience with prior Globus releases or grid computing in general. It whos you how to implement a GT3 demo or a proof-of-concepts scenario. Also, it illustrates the high-level concepts of the toolkit components and the overall architecture.
