Grid computing is already a mainstream paradigm for resource-intensive scientific applications, but it also promises to become the future model for enterprise applications. The grid enables resource sharing and dynamic allocation of computational resources, thus increasing access to distributed data, promoting operational flexibility and collaboration, and allowing service providers to scale efficiently to meet variable demands. Large-scale grids are complex systems composed of thousands of components from disjoined domains. Planning the capacity to guarantee quality of service (QoS) in such environments is a challenge because global service-level agreements (SLAs) depend on local SLAs. We provide a motivating example for grid computing in an enterprise environment and then discuss the how resource allocation affects SLAs.
