The Globus project is developing the fundamental technology that is needed to build computational grids, execution environments that enable an application to integrate geographically-distributed instruments, displays, and computational and information resources. Such computations may link tens or hundreds of these resources.

The Globus Toolkit is the software tools and services necessary to build a computational grid infrastructure and to develop applications that can exploit the advanced capabilities of the grid. Using the basic services provided by the toolkit, researchers may build a range of higher-level capabilities. For example, Globus provides a complete implementation of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) that can run across heterogeneous collections of computers.
