We introduce Grid Resources for Industrial Applications (GRIA), a project that aims to enable commercial use of the Grid. GRIA enables service providers to rent out spare CPU cycles, and clients to hire those CPU cycles. Web services play a key role in the architecture of GRIA, chiefly through their interoperability and security features -they provide a well-defined means of limiting clients' access to discrete operations, thus allowing clients to do "work" on a remote application server

We also describe some of the lessons learned through experience of designing, implementing and deploying a prototype system, GRIA v1.
