Open Grid : A User-Centric Approach for Grid Computing

  title={Open Grid : A User-Centric Approach for Grid Computing},
  author={Walfredo Cirne},
Given the massive number of computers that are networked together, combining the power of thousands of processors seems a natural way to tackle computationally intensive problems. Moreover, projects like SETI@home [11] have shown that some applications can effectively utilize an extremely large number of geographically dispersed processors. (As of February 2000, SETI@home encompassed 1.6 million participants in 224 countries and computes on average at 10 Teraflops.) However, there are a number… CONTINUE READING
