Optical networking for the Grid computing is an attractive proposition offering huge amount of affordable bandwidth and global reach of resources. Currently, Grid computing using optical network infrastructure is dedicated to a small number of well known organizations with extremely large jobs e.g. large data file transfers between known users or destinations. Due to the static or semi-static nature of this type of Grids, long-lived wavelength paths between clients and Grid resources with centralized job management strategies are usually deployed (Lambda Grids). This type of Grid networking relies on carrier provision of optical network resources while the Grid users have no visibility of the lambda infrastructure. In other words, the Grid user is not able to setup paths over the optical Grid network.
