Grid Resource Allocation: A Review
Source: Maxwell Science Publication
As computing technology improves the accessibility to computing resources increases, the demands put on resources gets higher and higher. A grid is a large-scale, heterogeneous, dynamic collection of independent systems, geographically distributed and interconnected with high speed networks. Furthermore, in grid, the resource allocation is a process of allocating user jobs to the CPUs. These jobs are divided into tasks which are allocated to different computers on grid for execution process. Resource allocation is one of the critical features of grid technology.
