This book presents research from many of the major projects involved in the emerging global grid infrastructure. With a particular focus on the practical advantages and applications of grid computing - including real case studies - the book provides an in-depth study of grid technology for a wide range of different needs. Topics: examines a remote instrumentation infrastructure, and a methodology to support e-science applications on e-infrastructures; describes the GEMS storage system, and pipeline workflows for optimizing end-to-end performance in wide-area networks; investigates semantic grid system architecture, social grid agents, and monitoring platforms designed for large-scale distributed systems; explores job control using service-level agreements; introduces the Composable Services Architecture for dynamic service provisioning, and the semantically driven communication middleware platform, Phoenix; discusses the PhyloGrid application, and a numerical simulation performed using grid computing.

Review quote

From the reviews: "This book on grid computing gathers contributions from a wide range of influential figures in the grid computing environment. ... As a reader, I can find a lot of information on grid computing in the public domain. ... this book serves as a good repository of articles on theories, architectures, infrastructure administration, and practical applications. Due to this diversity of contributions from successful influencers in grid computing, the book will be well appreciated by academia, researchers, and practitioners." (Harekrishna Misra, ACM Computing Reviews, July, 2012)

Back cover copy

Grid computing provides a mechanism for integrating, coordinating, and sharing heterogeneous computer resources. This continually evolving field now aims to completely disaggregate current computer platforms and distribute them across a network as resources that can be called into action by any eligible user or machine at any time. This accessible and broad-ranging text/reference presents valuable research and results from many of the major projects involved in the emerging global grid infrastructure. With a particular focus on the practical advantages and applications of grid computing including real case studies the book provides an in-depth study of grid technology for a wide range of different needs. Topics and features: Presents contributions from an international selection of experts in the fieldProvides summarizing abstracts and conclusions for each chapterExamines a remote instrumentation infrastructure, and a methodology to support e-science applications on e-infrastructuresDescribes the GEMS storage system, and pipeline workflows for optimizing end-to-end performance in wide-area networksInvestigates semantic grid system architecture, social grid agents, and monitoring platforms designed for large-scale distributed systemsExplores job control using service-level agreementsIntroduces the Composable Services Architecture for dynamic service provisioning, and the semantically driven communication middleware platform, PhoenixDiscusses the PhyloGrid application, and a numerical simulation performed using grid computing The deep insights that can be gleaned from the text make it a highly useful tool for researchers and professionals alike. Graduate students will also benefit from the extensive analysis on currently available grid systems."
