GRIDportal is a web based application portal which acts as a frontend to GRID computing. Its aim is to make common GRID applications like Abaqus, Matlab or BLAST more accessible to the user. Use of GRIDportal does not require any knowledge of Unix nor GRID computing whatsoever, all the user needs to know is how to use the given application, so the step from desktop computing to GRID computing should thus become a much smaller one than it otherwise would be.
