Global Computing harvest the idle time of Internet connected computers to run very large distributed applications. The unprecedented scale of the GCS paradigm requires to revisit the basic issues of distributed systems: performance models, security, fault-tolerance and scalability. The rst parts of this paper review recent work in Global Computing, with particular interest in Peer-to-Peer systems. In the last section, we present XtremWeb, the Global Computing System we are currently developing.
