    Optimizing Infrastructure for Software Testing Using Virtualization

    Virtualization technology and cloud computing have brought a paradigm shift in the way the authors utilize, deploy and manage computer resources. They allow fast deployment of multiple operating system as containers on physical machines which can be either discarded after use or checkpointed for later re-deployment. At European Organization for...

    Distributed Metadata with the AMGA Metadata Catalog

    Catalog Services play a vital role on Data Grids by allowing users and applications to discover and locate the data needed. On large Data Grids, with hundreds of geographically distributed sites, centralized Catalog Services do not provide the required scalability, performance or fault-tolerance. In this paper, the authors start by...

    Web Browser History Detection as a Real-World Privacy Threat

    Web browser history detection using CSS visited styles has long been dismissed as an issue of marginal impact. However, due to recent changes in Web usage patterns, coupled with browser performance improvements, the long-standing issue has now become a significant threat to the privacy of Internet users. In this paper,...

    Enabling and Optimizing Pilot Jobs Using Xen Based Virtual Machines for the HPC Grid Applications

    The primary motivation for uptake of virtualization have been resource isolation, capacity management and resource customization: isolation and capacity management allow providers to isolate users from the site and control their resources usage while customization allows end-users to easily project the required environment onto a variety of sites. Various approaches...

    Security in Distributed Metadata Catalogues

    Catalogue Services provide the discovery and location mechanisms that allow users and applications to locate data on Grids. Replication is a highly desirable feature in these services, since it provides the scalability and reliability required on large Data Grids and is the basis for federating catalogues from different organizations. Grid...
