This new edition provides a comprehensive overview of emerging distributed-systems technologies and includes many state-of-the-art infrastructures and technologies. It also offers exercises and historical contexts for each of the technologies.
This book details the history of the computing applications, including the World Wide Web, that have been spurred on by the demands of high-energy physics experimentation such as that conducted at the CERN facility, and includes predictions for the future.
The future internet must integrate optical wired and wireless mobile networks to meet the demand for pervasive capacity. This volume examines a number of modifications to existing layered reference models that feature cross-layer design and optimization.
This book is based on The CoreGRID Middleware Workshop, held in Barcelona, Spain, June 2008. It brings together a critical mass of well-established researchers worldwide, from forty-two institutions active in the field.
Focusing on the practical advantages and applications of grid computing, this book examines grid technology across a wide span of situations. The coverage includes real-world case studies from many major projects in the emerging global grid infrastructure.
This book includes selected papers from the CoreGRID Integration Workshop, held April 2008 in Heraklion-Crete, Greece. It provides a forum for the presentation and exchange of views on the latest developments in grid technology research.
Grid computing is widely regarded as a technology of immense potential. Together with a brief introduction into grid computing in general and underlying security technologies, this book offers the first concise and detailed introduction to this important area.
Here is the 8th volume of the CoreGRID series. The CoreGRID workshops and symposiums represent the premiere European event on Grid Computing. This book aims to strengthen and advance scientific and technological excellence in the area of Grid Computing.
With contributions from well-established researchers worldwide, this edited volume focuses on solving research challenges for Grid and P2P technologies. The book also includes new challenges related to service-oriented infrastructures.
