Metacomputing and Grid Frameworks
In this talk we will discuss software infrastructures for resource aggregation
and sharing across computer networks. Such technologies encompass clustering,
network computing, metacomputing, and recently grids. This talk will will
trace the evolution of metacomputing frameworks and their culmination in
today's grids. The principles, technical issues and solution strategies
underlying grid systems will comprise the body of the talk.
Vaidy Sunderam is a professor of Computer Science at Emory University.
His research interests are in parallel and distributed processing systems,
and infrastructures for collaborative computing. His prior and current
research efforts have focused on system architectures and implementations
for heterogeneous metacomputing, including the PVM system and several
other frameworks such as IceT, CCF, and Harness. Professor Sunderam teaches
computer science at the beginning, advanced, and graduate levels, and
advises graduate theses in the area of computer systems.
