Grid computing is the use of large collections of heterogeneous, distributed resources (including machines, databases, devices, and users) to support largescale computations and wide-area data access. The Legion system is an implementation of a software architecture for grid computing. The basic philosophy underlying this architecture is the presentation of all grid resources as components of a single, seamless, virtual machine. Legion’s architecture was designed to address the challenges of… CONTINUE READING
