Service Oriented Architectures for Grid Computing Environments: Opportunities and Challenges
Click here to download now
Overview: Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) support the development of software applications as loosely coupled discrete web services capable of running on multiple software and hardware platforms. Grid computing has allowed for the virtualization of both hardware and software resources, whereby it is possible to dynamically share, select, and use geographically distributed resources based on users needs. This paper published by Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers examines the current developments in providing SOA based open standards for Grid services and some of their limitations.
