Background information

elasticLM is developed and maintained by three partners of the previous European funded project SmartLM: ATOS Origin, the Fraunhofer Instuítute SCAI and Gridcore.

The objective of the European funded project SmartLM was to develop the prototype of a licensing solution suitable for both traditional computating environments and evolving distributed coputing infrastructures like Grids and Clouds .

Within the context of SmartLM a numb er of publications have been produced, some of them being public deliverables, some of them publications in proceedings of conferences or other printed media. Many of them can be accessed through the links below.
