Software Overview

With such a wide range of software available, it can be difficult to know which software best suits your needs. The Software Overview page collects all of our software into groups of similar functionality, and provides a short overview of each package to help you choose the most appropriate for your needs. Links to further information and downloads are also listed on this page.


Once you've decided on the software that you would like to use, download it for free from our downloads page.


The LiveCD allows you to run demonstrations of Campus Grid Toolkit and Rapid without the need to install and configure the software. It is the perfect way to test out the software. The LiveCD is a Linux install that boots from CD and uses only system memory (i.e. RAM) for operation.

Instructions for using and downloading the LiveCD.
