Contributions and Acknowledgments

The quality of the HTCondor project is enhanced by the contributions of external organizations. We gratefully acknowledge the following contributions.

  • The Globus Alliance (http://www.globus.org), for code and assistance in developing HTCondor-G and the Grid Security Infrastructure (GSI) for authentication and authorization.

  • The GOZAL Project from the Computer Science Department of the Technion Israel Institute of Technology (http://www.technion.ac.il/), for their enhancements for HTCondor’s High Availability. The condor_had daemon allows one of multiple machines to function as the central manager for a HTCondor pool. Therefore, if an acting central manager fails, another can take its place.

  • Micron Corporation (http://www.micron.com/) for the MSI-based installer for HTCondor on Windows.

  • Paradyn Project (http://www.paradyn.org/) and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (http://www.caos.uab.es/) for work on the Tool Daemon Protocol (TDP).
