In this paper, we contrast four approaches for Grid computing, and discuss a computer systems approach in detail. This approach views a Grid as a distributed computer system, and its main concerns are systems abstractions and constructs, such as the Grid equivalents of computer architecture, address space, process, device, file system, user/developer’s interface. Following this methodology, we identified several essential issues, developed a Vega Grid systems architecture, and proposed several… CONTINUE READING
