The next generation Grid will demand the Grid middleware to provide flexibility, transparency, and reliability. This implies the appliance of service level agreements to guarantee a negotiated level of quality of service. These requirements also affect the local resource management systems providing resources for the Grid. At this a gap between these demands and the features of today's resource management systems becomes apparent. In this paper we present an approach which closes this gap. Introducing the architecture of the virtual resource manager we highlight its main features of runtime responsibility, resource virtualization, information hiding, autonomy provision, and smooth integration of existing resource management system installations.
