GRUBER: A Grid Resource Usage SLA Broker
Resource sharing within grid collaborations usually implies specific sharing mechanisms at participating sites. Challenging policy issues can arise in such scenarios that integrate participants and resources spanning multiple physical institutions. Resource owners may wish to grant to one or more virtual organizations (VOs) the right to use certain resources subject to local usage policies and service level agreements, and each VO may then wish to use those resources subject to its usage policies. This paper describes GRUBER, an architecture and toolkit for resource usage service level agreement (SLA) specification and enforcement in a grid environment, and a series of experiments on a real grid, Grid3. The proposed mechanism allows resources at individual sites to be shared among multiple user communities.
