Scalable, Fault-Tolerant Management of Grid Services
Source: Indiana University
The service-oriented architecture has come a long way in solving the problem of reusability of existing software resources. Grid applications today are composed of a large number of loosely coupled services. While this has opened up new avenues for building large, complex applications, it has made the management of the application components a nontrivial task. Use of services existing on different platforms, implemented in different languages and presence of variety of network constraints further complicates management.
