Integrating service and desktop grids at middleware and application level

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Although there are many production level service and desktop grids they are usually not able to interoperate. The European FP7 EDGeS project aimed at integrating service grids (SG) and desktop grids (DG) to merge their benefits. The established production infrastructure includes gLite based service grid and BOINC and XtremWeb desktop grids. The paper describes the bridging technology developed in EDGeS both for the DG→SG and SG→DG directions both at middleware and application level.
