Programmable Grids Framework Enabling QoS in an OGSA Context [chapter]

John Soldatos, Lazaros Polymenakos, George Kormentzas
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Managing QoS across a Grid infrastructure is particularly complex since QoS must be addressed at three different levels: network, middleware and application.  ...  Configuring, monitoring and guaranteeing service levels is a key prerequisite towards supporting the wave of emerging Grid computing applications, especially those relating to e-business.  ...  Accomplishing this goal includes: (a) configuration of a grid service, (b) data transfer to a grid service (from a calling service), (c) execution of a remote service, (d) data transfer from the grid services  ...

User-friendly and reliable grid computing based on imperfect middleware

Rob V. van Nieuwpoort, Thilo Kielmann, Henri E. Bal
2007 Proceedings of the 2007 ACM/IEEE conference on Supercomputing - SC '07  
This paper describes the Java Grid Application Toolkit (Java-GAT) that provides a high-level, middleware-independent and siteindependent interface to the grid.  ...  The JavaGAT uses nested exceptions and intelligent dispatching of method invocations to handle errors and to automatically select suitable grid middleware implementations for requested operations.  ...  Third, heterogeneity in processors, the operating system, constantly changing and evolving middleware, and the fact that different grid sites use different grid middleware make it extremely difficult to  ...
