"Grid" computing has emerged as an important new field, distinguished from conventional distributed computing by its focus on large-scale resource sharing, innovative applications, and, in some cases, high-performance orientation. [] Key Method Next, we present an extensible and open Grid architecture, in which protocols, services, application programming interfaces, and software development kits are categorized according to their roles in enabling resource sharing.

TLDR
An extensible, generalized design model for future grid services, called computational federation service (CFS), which is based on virtualization of grid resources in a single system image, and builds on and extends previous research on computational federations.
Grid information services for distributed resource sharing
TLDR
This work presents an information services architecture that addresses performance, security, scalability, and robustness requirements of Grid software infrastructure and has been implemented as MDS-2, which forms part of the Globus Grid toolkit and has be widely deployed and applied.
The Design and Implementation of the GridLab Information Service
TLDR
The design and implementation of the GridLab Information Service is described, which provides information about current grid status and configuration to enable grid-aware applications to adapt themselves to changes in heterogeneous, dynamic environments.
Virtual Clusters for Grid Communities
TLDR
Described descriptions and methods that allow us to deploy flexibly configured virtual cluster workspaces and results show that virtual clusters representing current Grid production environments can be deployed and managed efficiently, and thus can provide an acceptable platform for Grid applications.
The Physiology of the Grid An Open Grid Services Architecture for Distributed Systems Integration
TLDR
This presentation complements an earlier foundational article, “The Anatomy of the Grid,” by describing how Grid mechanisms can implement a service-oriented architecture, explaining how Grid functionality can be incorporated into a Web services framework, and illustrating how the architecture can be applied within commercial computing as a basis for distributed system integration.
Introducing Virtual Private Overlay Network Services in Large Scale Grid Infrastructures
TLDR
This paper proposes a novel network resource abstraction for delivering dynamic on-demand Virtual Private Overlay connection services, into large-scale Grid environments that provides to Grid applications an illusion of dedicated layer-2 LAN connections that are fully comparable to a private network in performance, reliability, security and Quality of Service.
A secure collaboration service for dynamic virtual organizations
Architectural model for grid resources discovery
TLDR
An informative in nature article, a brief introduction of grid computing has been discussed, and web services have been introduced from which grid services technology is abstracted.
Grid Computing Models for Discovering the Resources
TLDR
A survey of different grid resource discovery techniques which are widely used approaches that has resulted in many tools to become de facto standards of today’s grid resource management is proposed.
Standards-Based Job Management in Grid Systems
TLDR
It is described how standards-enhanced Grid components can be used to create interoperable building blocks for a Grid architecture, and how existing components from the gLite middleware have been re-engineered to support BES/JSDL, GLUE and SAML.

The Anatomy of the Grid: Enabling Scalable Virtual Organizations
TLDR
The term "the Grid" was coined in the mid-1990s to denote a proposed distributed computing infrastructure for advanced science and engineering but the term has also been conflated, at least in popular perception, to embrace everything from advanced networking to artificial intelligence.
Data-intensive computing
TLDR
This work discusses how information-based computing within computational grids will enable collective advances in knowledge, and illustrates their new capabilities by presenting projects now under way that use some concepts implicit within grid environments.

TLDR
The progress that has been achieved to date in the development of the Globus toolkit, a set of core services for constructing grid tools and applications, is described and the GUSTO testbed, constructed to enable large-scale evaluation of Globus technologies, is discussed.
Design and deployment of a national-scale authentication infrastructure
TLDR
The Grid Security Infrastructure (GSI), an authentication and authorization infrastructure that meets requirements for single sign-on, no plaintext passwords, proxy credentials, mapping to local security mechanisms, site control over access control policies, and user-controlled delegation is described.
The AppLeS Parameter Sweep Template: User-Level Middleware for the Grid
TLDR
This paper describes a user-level Grid middleware project, the AppLeS Parameter Sweep Template (APST), that uses application-level scheduling techniques and various Grid technologies to allow the efficient deployment of parameter sweep applications over the Grid.
Secure, Efficient Data Transport and Replica Management for High-Performance Data-Intensive Computing
TLDR
The high-speed transport service, GridFTP, extends the popular FTP protocol with new features required for Data Grid applications, such as striping and partial file access, and the replica management service integrates a replica catalog with gridFTP transfers to provide for the creation, registration, location, and management of dataset replicas.
A resource query interface for network-aware applications
TLDR
The paper motivates and describes the design of Remos, an API that allows network-aware applications to obtain relevant information, and it explicitly adds statistical reliability and variability measures to the core information.
A Resource Management Architecture for Metacomputing Systems
TLDR
This work describes a resource management architecture that distributes the resource management problem among distinct local manager, resource broker, and resource co-allocator components and defines an extensible resource specification language to exchange information about requirements.
Cavern: a distributed architecture for supporting scalable persistence and interoperability in colla
TLDR
This paper begins by describing a number of collaborative virtual reality scenarios developed by the laboratory as well as collaborators, with the goal of identifying the key issues of networking and database management that are unique to collaborativevirtual reality.
