BEinGRID project

BEinGRID project

AlmereGrid was partner in this project.


BEinGRID project: Back-up for SMEs.

A grid can be used not only to calculate, but also, for example, to share storage space. By using Grid technology this can be performed safely and data never get into the wrong hands.

In a back-up Grid space on hard disk is shared. Hard drives now do not cost that much anymore. Use a portion of your hard drive for back-ups from others. Your back-up will be spread over hard disks of others.

Back-up data is encrypted and divided in little packages on your computer: impossible for others to reconstruct the information. The data are not simply divided in little packages, but there is made use of complex projection algorithms.

AlmereGrid has a demonstrator for a back-up Grid, which was developed in the European project BEinGRID, including the partners Rabobank Almere and Erasmus Business School.
