Efficient Grid Service Design to Integrate Parallel Applications

Al. Archip, M. Craus, S. Aruştei

Abstract

Although grid systems and grid computing have greatly evolved during the past few years, parallel application support remains somewhat limited. A new method for integrating parallel applications as grid services is presented. This method assumes that underlying parallel applications are resources for grid services; also, it implies that service resources may be clients for some predefined helper grid services. The design of the grid service is based on a Factory Service / Instance Service architecture, aiming to offer support for managing multiple resources. The tests were performed on the GRAI Grid (Academic Grid for Complex Applications), using Globus Toolkit 4 – versions 4.0.3 and 4.0.5 – as the base middleware.
