GRIDtoday: OpenRTE is an open source project that is designed to provide a portable distributed computing run-time environment for HPC workloads. Ralph Castain of Los Alamos National Laboratory leads the development of this project and has been conducting research in large-scale distributed computing as a research scientist at Colorado State University for some time. HPCwire got a chance to speak with Castain about OpenRTE. In this Q&A, he describes what it is, how it works, and what it could mean to the HPC community.
