The Sector/Sphere Project
The Sector/Sphere project was initiated at the National Center for Data Mining in 2006 as a research project to manage very large datasets over wide area networks. The project was supported in part by the National Science Foundation. Dr. Robert Grossman is the PI of the related research grants. Dr. Yunhong Gu is the architect and lead developer.
NCDM developed the majority of the Sector/Sphere open source software as of today. Other contributions were made from the Open Cloud Consortium, VeryCloud, and many community contributors.
Community support and contributions to the open source development are welcome (see How to Contribute).
