    The increasing power and number of mobile devices makes them an attractive target for grid computing. To date, most research related to mobile devices and grid computing is focused on the access and use of grid resources. In this paper we propose the use of mobile devices themselves as grid computing nodes. We demonstrate the feasibility of this concept by implementing the BOINC client on an Apple...

    With an increasing number of providers claiming to offer Cloud infrastructures, there is a lack in the community for a common terminology, accompanied by a clear definition and classification of Cloud features. We conduct in this paper a survey on a selection of Cloud providers, and propose a taxonomy of eight important Cloud computing elements covering service type, resource deployment, hardware,...

    More and more companies are adopting the emerging business model usually referred as ??service virtualization??. In service virtualization scenario, resource providers can host third-party services, as long as their resource and security requirements are compatible with those of service providers. XACML is a standard language for access control specification. We propose a complete support system f... View full abstract»

    Adapting existing distributed infrastructures to the Grid is a major aim of Germany's D-Grid initiative. As generic compute and data storage resources as well as management services for Virtual Organizations are well established in the D-Grid infrastructure, it is now possible for existing research communities to use these resources to enhance their existing infrastructures or develop new ones tha...

    The Storage Resource Broker (SRB), and its successor, the Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System (iRODS), are typical data grid software systems, which are widely exploited by researchers to store large data collections with associated metadata. On the other hand, the proprietary iRODS/SRB protocol results in limited support of high-quality and generic user interfaces. Although a few Graphical User ... View full abstract»

    Error handling is a crucial task in infrastructures as complex as grids. Today, there are several monitoring tools which can be used to report failing grid jobs including corresponding error codes. However, the error codes do not always indicate the actual fault which originally caused the job failure. Human time and expertise is required to manually trace errors back to the real fault underlying ... View full abstract»

    An emerging trend is the use of XML as the data format for many distributed scientific applications, with the size of these documents ranging from tens of megabytes to hundreds of megabytes. Our earlier benchmarking results revealed that most of the widely available XML processing toolkits do not scale well for large sized XML data. A significant transformation is necessary in the design of XML pr... View full abstract»
