Architecture

NDG and RM-ODP

NERC Data Grid was designed around  RM-ODP (The Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing) framework. Five abstractions or 'viewpoints' each describe the system from a different set of related concerns:

  1. Enterprise Viewpoint
  2. Information Viewpoint
  3. Computational Viewpoint
  4. Engineering Viewpoint
  5. Technology Viewpoint

For NDG, only Enterprise, Information and Computational Viewpoints were completed. The latter was completed to draft form. A security specific Computational Viewpoint has been written to complement this.
