Abstract

Desktop grids and service grids widely used by their different users communities as efficient solutions for making full use of computing power and achieving loads balances across Intranet or Internet. Nevertheless, little work has been done to combine these two girds technologies together to establish a seamless and vast grid resources pool. In this paper we will present a new European FP7 infrastructure project: EDGeS(Enabling Desktop Grids for e-Science), which aim to build technological bridges to facilitate interoperability between desktop grid and service grid. We give also a taxonomy of existing grid systems: desktop grids such as BONIC and Xtrem Web, sendee grids such as EGEE. Then we describe furtherly our solution for identifying translation technologies for porting applications between desktop grids and service grids, and vice versa. There are three themes in our solution, which discuss actual popular bridging technologies, user access issues, and distributed data issues about deployment and application development.
