opensource courtesy version and version that support by Sun now oracle.

The source of 6.2u3 still available.

The commerical version has some features like


new Amazon EC2 adapter and the SGE Inspect modules

and one can evaluate the binary for 90 days

6.2u5 introduce integration with Hadoop


This integration is in the Sun Grid Engine product, but not in the Grid Engine courtesy binaries that we just announced.

Aug 06 2010, 6.2u6 src is not yet available.
