A book that bridges the gap between the communities of network and Grid experts. Grid Networks describes the convergence of advanced networking technologies and Grid technologies, with special focus on their symbiotic relationship and the resulting new opportunities. Grid technology is applicable to many implementations, Computational Grids, Data Grids, Service Grids, and Instrumentation Grids. The authors cover a breadth of topics including recent research, featuring both theoretical concepts and empirical results. Beginning with an overview of Grid technologies, an analysis of distinguishing use cases and architectural attributes, and emerging standards. Travostino et al. discuss new directions in multiple networking technologies that are enabling enhanced capabilities for Grids. An appendix also provides an overview of experimental research test-beds and prototype implementations. These topics will enable network experts to design networks to best match Grid requirements, while Grid experts will learn how to effectively utilize network resources. Grid Networks: Enabling Grids with Advanced Communication Technology: * Bridges the gap between the communities of network and Grid experts. * Covers new network requirements posed by the Grid, and the paradigm shifts prompte.
