Computational power grids are computing environments with massive resources for processing and storage. While these resources may b e p e r v asive, harnessing them is a major challenge for the average user. NetSolve is a software environment that addresses this concern. A fundamental feature of NetSolve is its integration of fault-tolerance and task migration in a way that is transparent t o the end user. In this paper, we discuss how NetSolve's structure allows for the seamless integration of
