RAVE – Resource Aware Visualisation Environment Middleware Evaluation Report
This report provides an evaluation of the Resource Aware Visualisation Environment (RAVE) as developed by the Welsh e-Science Centre (WeSC) in Cardiff. It reports on a series of operations carried out by members of the Grid Engineering Task Force (ETF) which included the process of installation, deployment and use of RAVE services. The report is written with a view to finding out the suitability of RAVE in facilitating a national visualisation service. Criteria reported on for the purposes of this evaluation include: installation and deployment for clients, installation and deployment for servers, documentation, ease of use, functionality and future scalability. All technical issues encountered by the evaluators have been documented. The RAVE evaluation is part of a series of middleware evaluations conducted by the ETF. It stands alone and does not compare the application to other visualisation packages.
