GridOS: Operating System Services for Grid Architectures
Abstract— In this work, we demonstrate the power of providing a common set of operating system services to Grid Architectures, including high-performance I/O, communication, resource management, and process management. A Grid enables the sharing, selection, and aggregation of a wide variety of geographically distributed resources including supercomputers, storage systems, data sources, and specialized devices owned by different organizations administered with different policies. In the last few years, a number of exciting projects like Globus, Legion, and UNICORE developed the software infrastructure needed for grid computing. However, operating system support for grid computing is minimal or non-existent. Tool writers are forced to re-invent the wheel by implementing from scratch. This is error prone and often results in sub-optimal solutions. To address these problems, we are developing GridOS, a set of operating system services that facilitate grid computing. The services are desi...
