g-Eclipse is a framework that allows users and developers to access arbitrary computing infrastructures. What was called "Grid computing" a few years ago is now called "Cloud computing". The differences between the two approaches are not so big, but both infrastructures come with the challenge to access the resources in a unified way. That is what the g-Eclipse provides. The "g" in the name comes from "Grid", but the g-Eclipse framework itself is independent from a certain Grid infrastructure or Cloud Computing provider.
The g-Eclipse project maintains a set of connectors to Grid middlewares and provides an adapter to the Amazon webservices EC2 and S3. Take a look at this video that shows the usage of g-Eclipse within a Cloud Computing environment.
