The goal of the Mobius Project is to develop an array of tools and middleware components to coherently share and manage data and metadata in a Grid and/or distributed computing environment.

Mobius provides basic "building-block" services and protocols for data and metadata management that can be leveraged to allow for semantic queries across disparate datasets, the smooth translation of data models between parties, and the ad hoc creation of data warehouses. It will give the Grid and distributed computing communities and, especially, the scientific community on the Grid a means for efficient discovery of services and transparent exchange of data across and between institutions, and it will provide these communities with streamlined and easy to use mechanisms for large-scale data querying, storage, and retrieval across distributed resources.

Mobius was created by Shannon Hastings, Stephen Langella, and Scott Oster, all of whom were computer science researchers at The Ohio State University.
