Multiple Cluster support for Nimbus

by Adam for The Globus Alliance

The Nimbus software does not have the capability to schedule requests across multiple clusters providing cloud resources, as highlighted in Globus project idea "ClusterBuilder: Distributed Virtual Environments over the Clouds". The summer project involves 2 parts. Part 1 will create a tool to publish information about the Nimbus cloud resources at a particular site to a registry (likely Globus MDS). Part 2 will be the creation of a tool to schedule requests to multiple Nimbus clouds.
