As the vision of the semantic grid slowly becomes a reality, more and more people start migrating their applications onto the semantic grid environment as grid resources. Their applications have the ability to use a wide range of grid resources as well as have exposure to a larger population of potential users. This paper explores some of the main obstacles that obstruct the deployment of the distributed ontology framework onto the semantic grid environment. The results are a set of validation criteria that can be used to determine if particular systems are ready to be deployed on the semantic grid.
