Title: Grid Computing and Applications

'Grid' computing has emerged as an important new field, distinguished from conventional distributed computing by its focus on large-scale resource sharing, innovative applications, and, in some cases,more » high-performance orientation. In this talk, Dr. Foster defines this new field. First, he reviews the 'Grid problem,' which he defines as flexible, secure, coordinated resource sharing among dynamic collections of individuals, institutions, and resources - what he refers to as virtual organizations. In such settings, we encounter unique authentication, resource access, resource discovery, and other challenges. It is this class of problem that is addressed by Grid technologies. He presents an extensible and open Grid architecture, in which protocols, services, application programming interfaces, and software development kits are categorized according to their roles in enabling resource sharing. He also reviews major Grid projects worldwide and describes how they are contributing to the realization of this architecture.« less
