Grid Computing

Vol. 43, No. 4, 2004

Order No. G321-0155

Within the last few years grid computing has evolved from a research concept into an important component of information technology, with hundreds of operational grids throughout the world. This issue contains five papers that deal with various aspects of the grid infrastructure, such as security, namespaces, logging, and aggregation of services. The issue also includes a paper on intraGrid, an experimental grid deployed on the IBM intranet, and a tutorial on the evolution of grid architecture. A non-topical paper describes MyMED, a database system for biomedical research.
