Large scale distributed systems like Grid gather several characteristics making them difficult to study only from theoretical models and simulators. Most of Grid deployed at large scale are production platforms making them inappropriate research tools because of their limited reconfig-uration, control and monitoring capabilities. In this paper , we present(More)
This article deals with TakTuk, a middleware that deploys efficiently parallel remote executions on large scale grids (thousands of nodes). This tool is mostly intended for interactive use: distributed machines administration and parallel applications development. Thus, it has to minimize the time required to complete the whole deployment process. To(More)
Focused around the field of the exploitation and the administration of high performance large-scale parallel systems , this article describes the work carried out on the deployment of environment on high computing clusters and grids. We initally present the problems involved in the installation of an environment (OS, middleware, libraries, applications...)(More)
The question of energy savings has been a matter of concern since a long time in the mobile distributed systems and battery-constrained systems. However, for large-scale non-mobile distributed systems, which nowadays reach impressive sizes, the energy dimension (electrical consumption) just starts to be taken into account. In this paper, we present the(More)
