Optical Networks for Grid and Cloud Computing Applications The evolution toward grid and cloud computing as observed for over a decennium illustrates the crucial role played by (optical) networks in supporting today's applications. In this paper, we start from an overview of the challenging applications in both academic (further referred to as scientific), enterprise (business) and nonprofessional user (consumer) domains. They pose novel challenges, calling for efficient interworking of IT resources, for both processing and storage, as well as the network that interconnects them and provides access to their users. We outline those novel applications' requirements, including sheer performance attributes (which will determine the quality as perceived by end users of the cloud applications), as well as the ability to adapt to changing demands (usually referred to as elasticity) and possible failures (i.e., resilience). In outlining the foundational concepts that provide the building blocks for grid/cloud solutions that meet the stringent application requirements we highlight, a prominent role is played by optical networking. The pieces of the solution studied in this respect span the optical transport layer as well as mechanisms located in higher layers (e.g., anycast routing, virtualization) and their interworking (e.g., through appropriate control plane extensions and middleware). Based on this study, we conclude by identifying challenges and research opportunities that can enable future-proof optical cloud systems (e.g., pushing the virtualization paradigms to optical networks).

Abstract

2. Secure Data Objects Replication in Data Grid
Abstract Secret sharing and erasure coding-based approaches have been used in distributed storage systems to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical information. To achieve performance goals in data accesses, these data fragmentation approaches can be combined with dynamic replication. In this paper, we consider data partitioning (both secret sharing and erasure coding) and dynamic replication in data grids, in which security and data access performance are critical issues. More specifically, we investigate the problem of optimal allocation of sensitive data objects that are partitioned by using secret sharing scheme or erasure coding scheme and/or replicated. The grid topology we consider consists of two layers. In the upper layer, multiple clusters form a network topology that can be represented by a general graph. The topology within each cluster is represented by a tree graph. We decompose the share replica allocation problem into two subproblems: the optimal intercluster resident set problem (OIRSP) that determines which clusters need share replicas and the optimal intracluster share allocation problem (OISAP) that determines the number of share replicas needed in a cluster and their placements. We develop two heuristic algorithms for the two subproblems. Experimental studies show that the heuristic algorithms achieve good performance in reducing communication cost and are close to optimal solutions.

Although the developmental tools and techniques for the grid have been extensively studied. For the research described in this paper. and registered it to Globus as an additional service 4.3. queuing theory. This paper describes how we implemented a grid IR system using VO and security mechanisms provided by Globus toolkit 3. A Hierarchical Modeling and Analysis for Grid Service Reliability Abstract Grid computing is a recently developed technology. This paper is the first one that presents a hierarchical model for the grid service reliability analysis and evaluation. evaluate. The dynamic nature of VO applies not only to increasing and decreasing number of users.0. and to enforce different levels of security among different VOs. and graph theory are mainly used to model. network failures. This implies that a request to increase computing power by a certain subcomponent can be satisfied by other idling subcomponents taking advantage of overall system flexibility. we implemented VO management service (VOMS). “Grid Information Retrieval Management System for Dynamically Reconfigurable Virtual Organization” Abstract Under foundational precepts of grid computing. Various types of failures are interleaved in the grid computing environment. and analyze the grid service reliability. and then showed how the requirements can be met by implementing a grid information retrieval (GIR) system prototype. and shows how GIR system scalability and security can be improved for dynamic VOs. Numerical examples are illustrated . two important requirements that all grid application systems should satisfy are to accommodate the dynamic nature of virtual organizations (VOs). This paper investigates all of them to achieve a complete picture about grid service reliability. we developed two different use-case scenarios addressing the two requirements. time-out failures. In order to manage different VOs. matchmaking failures. grid reliability analysis is not easy because of its complexity. and resource failures. Markov models. such as blocking failures. The hierarchical modeling is mapped to the physical and logical architecture of the grid service system and makes the evaluation and calculation tractable by identifying the independence among layers.

Using data extracted from production-quality Grid and Cloud computing infrastructures. a powerful tool for software search and discovery in order to help end-users locate application software suitable to their needs. In order to achieve this. we evaluate an important number of multi-label classifiers and discuss which one and with what settings is the most appropriate for use in the particular problem. . In this paper we introduce tagging capabilities to the Miner soft system.A key challenge for Grid and Cloud infrastructures is to make their services easily accessible and attractive to end-users. we model the problem of tag prediction as a multi-label classification problem.
