Executive Summary

In recent years grids and peer-to-peer networks have gained popularity as favourable platforms for the next generation of parallel and distributed computing. Although grid computing was conceived in re-search organizations to support initially compute-intensive scientific applications, enterprises of all types are beginning to recognize this technology as a foundation for the flexible management and use of their internal resources. The rapid enhancements in web services technology, semantic technology, and standards, have provided an evolutionary path from the architecture of the early grid to the advanced Cyberinfrastructure that will constitute a standardized, general-purpose, service-oriented, knowledge, enterprise-class Grid of the future.
