Grid and Virtualization

The main subject of discussion is about grid computing, but remarkable topics to be discussed here are:

  • Provisioning
  • Adaptivity
  • Virtualization
  • Orchestration
Grid computing aims to provide an infrastructure to gather logically a set of distributed resources in a transparent way to end user. All infrastructure is built on top of non-proprietary and widely accepted protocols.

Important achievements to provide that basic infrastructure has been made, however, distributed environments involves new challenges to be considered.

An important challenge is to build autonomic environments and preliminary developments related to the items enumerate above require be made.

Then, that blog periodically will publish relevant information about it.
