Abstract
High performance application development remains
challenging, particularly for scientists making the
transition to a Grid environment. In general areas of
computing, virtual environments such as Java and .Net
have proved successful in fostering application
development. Unfortunately, these existing virtual
environments do not provide the necessary high
performance computing abstractions required by e-
Scientists. In response, we propose and demonstrate a new
approach to the development of a high performance
virtual infrastructure: Motor is a virtual machine
developed by integrating a high performance message
passing library directly within a virtual infrastructure.
Motor provides high performance application developers
with a common runtime, garbage collection and system
