Most offices are not populated outside normal working hours, 8am to 4pm on
working days, this implies that the computing resources are unused about 128
out of 168 hours each week. The vision of MESH-Technologies is to allow
for the constructive use of these hours of wasted time. Would you allow any
other of your company's resources to be utilized less than 10%? (according to Microsoft
SIGMetrics paper, 1998-2000) OfficeGRID glues this pool of unused
computational power together, thus making in possible to utilize a
great percentage of that otherwise unused computer time.
OfficeGRID offers many useful features and the most essential features, and their benefits, are listed below.

Cross platform - Windows Vista/XP/2000/NT, Mac OS X and many flavors of Linux/UNIX.
An easy to use graphical interface for submission of jobs to the Grid.
Simple, yet powerful, command line interface commands.
Workers run while screen saver mode is active.
Parameter studies are made easy through a simple job description language.
A flexible Grid application programming interface (API).
In addition to web/GUI and command line interfaces, OfficeGRID
also includes direct access to the Grid through a Python API
module. Combine the advantages of the object oriented Python
programming language with OfficeGRID to gain complete control over
advanced job orchestration beyond what the simple job description
language allows in itself.
Implements a "pull" Grid model instead of the tradional "push" model.
A simple and easy to use batch system lets you execute programs on the
Dynamic Grid structure, where computers can come and go.
Fault tolerant communication.
Multi core support.
Easy Grid configuration.
Full support for both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems.
No lost jobs.
Save power with Wake on LAN support.
Users retain their usual environment in jobs.
Grid jobs are executed in the usual environment of the user. Local applications and environment settings are
therefore available during job execution.
