Grid Computing: Operations Research Methods for Resource Management and Scheduling
This paper introduces grid computing, lays out a taxonomy for comparing and analyzing the existing grid resource management systems, discusses the optimization and coordination of computational grids, and presents quantitative methods for managing grid resources. Local scheduling, external scheduling, and coordination of grid endpoints are highlighted as methods of resource management. Techniques and ongoing research projects are also discussed for improving the economy of resource bundles in flat, hierarchical, and cell structure grids.
