The availability of powerful microprocessors and high-speed networks as commodity components has enabled high performance computing on distributed systems (wide-area cluster computing). In this environment, as the resources are usually distributed geographically at various levels (department, enterprise, or worldwide) there is a great challenge in integrating, coordinating and presenting them as a single resource to the user; thus forming a computational grid. Another challenge comes from the distributed ownership of resources with each resource having its own access policy, cost, and mechanism. The proposed Nimrod/G grid-enabled resource management and scheduli...
