GRATE: Global Remote Access To Emulation services

In 2006 the Planets project released their First Version of GRATE. As stated in the document, “This deliverable describes the first version of GRATE (Global Remote Access To Emulation services), one of the tools for environments in PA/5, which allows access to emulation processes run remotely via a network.” From the executive summary, “Within the Preservation Action sub-project, the workpackage PA/5 develops and tests both emulation tools and tools related to emulation. Three tools are under development:
1. Dioscuri (a modular hardware emulator for digital preservation)
2. UVC (Universal Virtual Computer)
3. GRATE (Global Remote Access To Emulation services)”
