Grid, Resource aggregation, Resource allocation


Resource management is central to grid computing and plays a vital role in ensuring that the jobs execute both successfully and economically on the grid. In this paper, we present an analysis of the factors affecting resource allocation and illustrate the same in the case of disk space aggregation. We explore the feasibility of a comprehensive resource aggregation network that can bind fragmented resources together to provide a unified resource for grid jobs. We provide an implementation framework to realise resource aggregation, by adopting and enhancing the Alchemi [1] framework.
