Editorial Reviews

From Book News, Inc.
Grid computing is here defined as coordinated resource sharing and problem solving in dynamic, multi-institutional collaborations that typically involves many resources to solve a single, large problem that could not be resolved using any single resource. Now that techniques for assembling and integrating resources have been well described, computer and information scientists, along with other contributors, take a step back up the chain to consider how to manage the resources themselves in such contexts as multiple layers of schedulers, lack of control over resources, shared resources and variance, and conflicting performance goals.Copyright 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Book Description
Grid Resource Management: State of the Art and Future Trends presents an overview of the state of the field and describes both the real experiences and the current research available today. Grid computing is a rapidly developing and changing field, involving the shared and coordinated use of dynamic, multi-institutional resources. Grid resource management is the process of identifying requirements, matching resources to applications, allocating those resources, and scheduling and monitoring Grid resources over time in order to run Grid applications as efficiently as possible. While Grids have become almost commonplace, the use of good Grid resource management tools is far from ubiquitous because of the many open issues of the field, including the multiple layers of schedulers, the lack of control over resources, the fact that resources are shared, and that users and administrators have conflicting performance goals. These are the issues addressed in this book, in addition to elucidating the overlap with related areas including discussions of work with peer-to-peer computing, economic approaches, and operations research. Grid Resource Management: State of the Art and Future Trends is an invaluable resource for today's user, application developer, or resource owners when working with Grid resource management systems.
