MIP - Modular Information Provider

The Modular Information Provider (MIP) is developed by CIGI to manage and automatically aggregate information sources for Grid information services. MIP tackles the challenge of mapping the information from a number of sources to be handled by a few information services with minimal human intervention. MIP addresses such mapping through a modular approach through which it can be deployed to achieve the interoperability among multiple Grids. MIP can be customized in a straightforward way to a specific Grid environment, and it also supports flexible information schema. Current MIP implementation is based on Globus MDS4 and the XML version of GLUE Schema 1.2.
