Learn the Future of Computing Today!

Many industry analysts believe that Grid computing will be the next big wave in technology. It is so promising that major technology companies such as IBN, Microsoft, Oracle, and Sun are allocating significant quantities of resources for Grid research and development. A Developer’s Guide to Grid Computing explores the evolution of Grid computing from the early distributed computer paradigm to the modern Grid environments. Most of today’s Grid environments will be examined including OGSA, Resource Managers, and MPI. The book also explores today’s de facto standards for Grid computing including a comprehensive guide to the Globus Toolkit for developers covering installation, system administration, development guides for Grid services, open Grid services architectures for WSRF, commodity Grid kits for Java, Perl, and OGSA-C, and performance evaluation tests. A significant amount of source code samples accompanies each chapter. A Developers Guide to Grid Computing is an ideal resource for computer scientists and researches, graduate students, and IT professionals looking to further expand their Grid Computing skills.

Key Features: * Teaches developers today’s standards for Grid computing * Provides a comprehensive guide to the Globus Toolkit for developers covering installation, system administration, development guides for Grid services architectures, Web Services Resource Framework (WERF), commodity Grid kits for Java, Perl, and OGSA-C, and performance evaluation tests * Explores the evolution of Grid computing from the early distributed computing paradigm to the modern Grid environments * Includes comparisons between today’s Grid computing environments (OGSA, WSRF) and parallel APIs, such as MPI * Features a companion CD-ROM with all the code and figures from the book

On the CD-ROM! * Projects: Contains all the code from examples covered in the book by chapter * Images: Contains all the images in the book, in color, by chapter
