Optimizing Database Resources on the Grid
Source: Hanoi University of Technology
Research and development activities relating to Grid Computing are growing in the academic field and have reached corporate organizations. Now it is possible to join desktop computers in a grid environment, increasing the processing and storage capability of application systems. Although this has allowed progress in building rapidly various aspects of Grid infrastructure, the integration of different resources, including database, is fundamental. The use of relational databases and the query distribution among them are vital to develop consistent grid applications. This paper shows the planning, distribution and parallelization of database query on grid computing and how one single complex query can optimize the use of database resources.
