Nearly all existing HPC systems are operated by resource management systems based on the queuing approach. With the increasing acceptance of grid middleware like Globus, new requirements for the underlying local resource management systems arise. Features like advanced reservation or quality of service are needed to implement high level functions like(More)
The UNICORE Grid-technology provides a seamless, secure and intuitive access to distributed Grid resources. In this paper we present the recent evolution from project results to production Grids. At the beginning UNICORE was developed as a prototype software in two projects funded by the German research ministry (BMBF). Over the following years, in various(More)
UNICORE is a European Grid Technology with more than 10 years of history. Originating from the Supercomputing domain, the latest version UNICORE 6 has turned into a general-purpose Grid technology that follows established standards and offers a rich set of features to its users. The paper starts with an architectural insight into UNICORE 6, highlighting the(More)
This paper discusses two approaches to enhance multi-site scheduling for grid environments. First the potential improvements of multi-site scheduling by applying constraints for the job fragmentation are presented. Subsequently, an adaptive multi-site scheduling algorithm is pointed out and evaluated. The adaptive multi-site scheduling uses a simple(More)
In this paper we present a robust software infrastructure for metacomputing. The system is intended to be used by others as a building block for large and powerful computational grids. Much effort has been taken to develop a fault tolerant architecture that does not exhibit a single point of failure. Furthermore, we designed the system to be modular, lean,(More)
This paper addresses the potential benefit of sharing jobs between independent sites in a grid computing environment. Also the aspect of parallel multi-site job execution on different sites is discussed. To this end, various scheduling algorithms have been simulated for several machine configurations with different workloads which have been derived from(More)
