Nile

(calls itself "National Challenge Computing Project", not an acronym): 24 institutions including Cornell, UTexas, are using CORBA, widely distributed workstations and Data (aim is for 100 Terabytes in a distributed database) to cooperate seemlessly to support High Energy Physics computations within the CLEO project. "Nile will allow any resource to be accessed and used transparently by any Member of the collaboration, from anywhere within the collaboration." May be a good model for GEM to learn from; at first glance, looks much like what we want to do, but in a different field of science.
