Economic Workflow Scheduling Strategy in Mobile Grid
Source: Korea University
A wired Grid recognizes resources connected with a fixed network as shared resources. But the present computing environment is evolving to mobile computing environment that involves mobile devices and wireless network. Therefore, the next generation Grids should offer an environment that uses a mobile device as a Grid resource not recognized in wired Grids. It is necessary to develop a system model and a scheduling algorithm for economic scheduling paradigm and load-balancing, which consider both wired and wireless environment. This paper proposes a service based architecture that integrates wireless resources with wired resources using proxy-based method to be a resource consumer and a resource producer and suggest an adaptive scheduling strategy considering economy in Mobile Grid.
