With the growing amount of computational resources not only locally (multi-core), but also across the web, utility computing (aka Clouds and Grids) becomes more and more interesting as a means to outsource management and services. So far, these machines still act like external resources that have to be explicitly selected, integrated, accessed etc. - much like the concept of “Virtual Organisation” prescribes. This paper will describe how the development of dealing with increased scale and heterogeneity of future systems will implicitly open the door for new ways if integrating and using remote resources through a kind of web-based “fabric”.
