PhantomOS: A Next Generation Grid Operating System

  author={Irfan Habib and Kamran Soomro and Ashiq Anjum and Richard McClatchey and Arshad Ali and Peter Charles Bloodsworth},
Grid Computing has made substantial advances in the past decade; these are primarily due to the adoption of standardized Grid middleware. However Grid computing has not yet become pervasive because of some barriers that we believe have been caused by the adoption of middleware centric approaches. These barriers include: scant support for major types of applications such as interactive applications; lack of flexible, autonomic and scalable Grid architectures; lack of plug-and-play Grid computing…

From Grid Middleware to a Grid Operating System
This paper proposes an architecture to migrate grid computing into a grid operating system which it is believed would help remove most of the technical barriers to the adoption of grid computing and make it relevant to the day-to-day user.
Middleware for the next generation Grid infrastructure
An architecture and design of the next generation Grid middleware leveraging experiences and existing components essentially from AliEn, EDG, and VDT is developed, which follows the service breakdown developed by the LCG ARDA group.

XtreemOS would considerably ease the work of users belonging to VOs by giving them (as far as possible) the illusion of using a traditional computer, and releasing them from dealing with the complex resource management issues of a grid environment.
SPHINX: a fault-tolerant system for scheduling in dynamic grid environments
These results demonstrate that SPHINX can effectively schedule work across a large number of distributed clusters that are owned by multiple units in a virtual organization in a fault-tolerant way in spite of the highly dynamic nature of the grid and complex policy issues.
Using Overlay Networks to Build Operating System Services for Large Scale Grids
This paper shows why it is highly desirable to use structured and unstructured peer-to-peer overlays for building the high-level services of Vigne grid operating system and details the features of two Vigne services built on top of peer- to- peer overlays.
Globus: a Metacomputing Infrastructure Toolkit
The Globus system is intended to achieve a vertically integrated treatment of application, middleware, and net work, an integrated set of higher level services that enable applications to adapt to heteroge neous and dynamically changing metacomputing environ ments.
ASKALON: a Grid application development and computing environment
The ASKALON environment is centered around a set of high-level services for transparent and effective Grid access, including a Scheduler for optimized mapping of workflows onto the Grid, an Enactment Engine for reliable application execution, and a Resource Manager covering both computers and application components.
Scheduling distributed applications: the SimGrid simulation framework
The SimGrid framework is presented which enables the simulation of distributed applications in distributed computing environments for the specific purpose of developing and evaluating scheduling algorithms and a case study is presented by which the usefulness of SimGrid is demonstrated for conducting scheduling research.
A new approach to configurable dynamic scheduling in clusters based on single system image technologies
The architecture of the global scheduler and the process management mechanisms of Kerrighed, a single system image operating system designed for high performance computing on clusters, are presented and preliminary performance results are presented.
A Super-Peer Model for Building Resource Discovery Services in Grids: Design and Simulation Analysis
This paper examines how the super-peer model can be used to handle membership management and resource discovery services in a multi-organizational Grid.
