VisIVO Server and Library
VisIVO Server has been specifically designed for a distributed computing environment. This tool offers a framework for exploration of large-scale scientific data-sets, particularly related to cosmological simulations.
VisIVO Library allows a job running on a computational system (grid, HPC, etc.) to produce movies directly with the code internal data arrays without the need to produce intermediate files. This is particularly important when running on large computational facilities, where the user wants to have a look at the results during the data production phase. For example, in grid computing facilities, images can be produced directly in the grid catalogue while the user code is running in a system that cannot be directly accessed by the user (a worker node). The deployment of VisIVO on the Desktop Grid and gLite has been carried out with the support of EDGI and EGI-Inspire projects.
