    The trend in recent years in distributed computing and distributed information systems has been to open up: to expose interfaces and content outside the bounds of the originating application, resource or middleware; to simplify access to third party resources, data and capability; and to actively encourage and support creativity through the reuse and combination of already available components and...

  • Scheduling Δ-Critical Tasks in mixed-parallel applications on a national grid

    Mixed-parallel applications can take advantage of large-scale computing platforms but scheduling them efficiently on such platforms is challenging. When relying on classic list-scheduling algorithms, the issue of independent and selfish task allocation determination may arise. Indeed the allocation of the most critical task may lead to poor allocations for subsequent tasks. In this paper we propos... View full abstract»

  • Multi-objective planning for workflow execution on Grids

    Utility grids create an infrastructure for enabling users to consume services transparently over a global network. When optimizing workflow execution on utility grids, we need to consider multiple quality of service (QoS) parameters including service prices and execution time. These optimization objectives may be in conflict. In this paper, we have proposed a workflow execution planning approach u... View full abstract»

    A very important issue in executing a scientific workflow in computational grids is how to map and schedule workflow tasks onto multiple distributed resources and handle task dependencies in a timely manner to deliver users' expected performance. In this paper, we present our work to develop and evaluate an advanced workflow scheduler in computational grid environments, the GRACCE scheduler. The G... View full abstract»

    Currently deployed grids gather together thousands of computational and storage resources for the benefit of a large community of scientists. However, the large scale, the wide geographical spread, and at times the decision of the rightful resource owners to commit the capacity elsewhere, raises serious resource availability issues. Little is known about the characteristics of the grid resource av... View full abstract»

    Grid applications comprise several components and web-services that make them highly prone to the occurrence of transient software failures and aging problems. This type of failures often incur in undesired performance levels and unexpected partial crashes. In this paper we present a technique that offers high-availability for Grid services based on concepts like virtualization, clustering and sof... View full abstract»

    The functional heterogeneity of non-dedicated computational grids will increase with the inclusion of resources from desktop grids, P2P systems, and even mobile grids. Machine failure characteristics, as well as individual and organizational policies for resource usage by the grid, will increasingly vary even more than they already do. Since grid applications also vary as to how well they tolerate... View full abstract»

  • Fair resource sharing in hierarchical virtual organizations for global grids

    In global grid computing, users and resource providers organize various virtual organizations (VOs) to share resources and services. A VO organizes other sub-VOs for the purpose of achieving the VO goal, which forms hierarchical VO environments. Resource providers and VOs agree upon VO resource sharing policies, such as resource sharing amount. Thus, users in lower-layer VOs can access resources i... View full abstract»
