Users’ client programs request combinations of services from a set of server nodes which communicate at a peer-based level. DISCWorld is a constrained metacomputing system, running only the service operations its participating resource administrators have chosen to provide and advertise, and provides a common integration environment for clients to access these… CONTINUE READING
