We study a class of Internet-based virtual environments with interactivity and real-time requirements. A relevant representative of this class are Real-Time Online Interactive Applications (ROIA), examples being multi-player online games and high-performance e-learning and training systems. We present how the European project edutain@grid addresses the development of scalable ROIA. After describing the four-layer architecture of edutain@grid, we focus on the Real-Time Framework (RTF) - our novel middleware solution - and report experimental results demonstrating performance and scalability of our approach.
