Although originally an academic and research product, the WS-PGRADE/gUSE framework is increasingly applied by commercial institutions too. Within the SCI-BUS project, several commercial gateways have been developed by various companies. WS-PGRADE/gUSE is also intensively used within another European research project, CloudSME (Cloud-based Simulation Platform for Manufacturing and Engineering). This chapter provides an overview and describes in detail some commercial WS-PGRADE/gUSE-based gateway implementations. Two representative case studies from the SCI-BUS project, the Build and Test portal and the eDOX Archiver Gateway, are introduced. An overview of WS-PGRADE/gUSE-based gateways for running simulation applications in the cloud within the CloudSME project is also provided.
