Open Grid Forum

An Open Global Forum for Advanced Distributed Computing

OGF is an open global community committed to driving the rapid evolution and adoption of advanced applied distributed computing. OGF is focused on developing and promoting innovative scalable methods, applications and infrastructures to improve productivity in the enterprise and within the science community.

OGF accomplishes its work through open forums that build the community, explore trends, share optimal approaches, document findings and consolidate these results where appropriate into standards. The output products that result from this process document and codify best practices and standards that provide the basis for some of the largest and most powerful operational computing infrastructure systems in the world.

OGF adheres to and endorses the OpenStand principles for open standards development and is a signatory to the joint statement of affirmation of these principles.
