We present some recent and ongoing work in our decentralized desktop computing grid project. Specifically, we discuss matching jobs with compute nodes in a peer-to-peer grid of heterogeneous platforms, and the implementation of our algorithms in a concrete system.
The goal of the work described in this paper is to design and build a scalable infrastructure for executing grid applications on a widely distributed set of resources. Such grid infrastructure must be decentralized, robust, highly available, and scalable, while efficiently mapping application instances to available resources in the system. However, current… (More)
