INCREASING FLEXIBILITY AND ABSTRACTING COMPLEXITY IN SERVICE-BASED GRID AND CLOUD SOFTWARE

Per-Olov Östberg, Erik Elmroth

Abstract

This work addresses service-based software development in Grid and Cloud computing environments, and proposes a methodology for Service-Oriented Architecture design. The approach consists of an architecture design methodology focused on facilitating system flexibility, a service model emphasizing component modularity and customization, and a development tool designed to abstract service development complexity. The approach is intended for use in computational eScience environments and is designed to increase flexibility in system design, development, and deployment, and reduce complexity in system development and administration. To illustrate the approach we present case studies from two recent Grid infrastructure software development projects, and evaluate impact of the development approach and the toolset on the projects.
