Today, the world facing with huge flood of data and the recent advances in computer technology have provided the capability to process significant amount of data. On the other hand, analyzing the information requires resources that most institutions do not have, independently. To handle such circumstances, grid computing has emerged as an important research area where the calculation of distributed computing and clustering are different. In this study, we propose a grid computing architecture

The results of the implementation of the proposed algorithm on grid systems indicate the superiority of the proposed approach in terms of validation criteria scheduling algorithms, such as task completion time and the performance compared with some alternative method.
