- Project contribution:
The work carried out by the Paris Project-Team relates to the design and implementation of a Grid-aware operating system for cluster federations. As part of this contract, we design a resource discovery and allocation service based on an underlying, peer-to-peer overlay network. It enables to cope with the decentralized and dynamic nature of a cluster federation. We also study application scheduling policies for cluster federations that will be evaluated experimentally with workloads provided by EDF R&D.
