1 Introduction
Recent computing trends have shown an increase in the
demand for large-scale, distributed, federated computing
environments. Two of the more popular environments
that have emerged are the Grid and PlanetLab. At a high
level, these systems are similar in many ways; both are
comprised of a set of heterogeneous interconnected ma-
chines that allows secure resource sharing for a variety
of different users and applications. However, at a lower
level, the systems are very distinct in the sense that they
were designed to solve different types of problems, and
therefore have fundamental differences that make it dif-
ficult to develop and deploy applications on both plat-
forms. As a result, application designers and researchers
create software that runs on either the Grid or Planetlab,
but not both.
