19 Grid software deployment Version 1.0 in Feb Starting deployment in March 2004 on the test-bed

20 Deployment of grid software 1.0

21 Major features of the CNGrid software v2 V 1.1V 2.0 Architect ure Simple virtualization Resource routing Advanced virtualization, grid proc, community Loosely coupled: easy to change Lower the appl. programming cost User man Life cycle man (reg., login, use, maintain, logout) Supporting roles Security man. Single login and authentication Supporting authorization (community- based multi-grain access control) Sys. Man.Monitoring, accountingMonitoring, accounting, log file Resourc e man. Virtual & physical resource man., dynamic deploy Effective, virtual resource management (strategy-based resource selection) Data man. Multi-point (not user transparent), physic view Unified virtual view, location independent, access control

22 CNGrid GOS Client API CNGrid GOS Core API Grid application logic Management tools for grid software, grid use environment Dynamic Deploymen t services Name services Data services PKI based grid security mechanis m Grid Application Grid address buses Grid resources Resource management Application servers (i.e. Tomcat...) Grid node hosts and storage resources Resources encapsulation Strategies and Access control engine Grid file management Resource schedule strategyAuthorize strategy Access control at service operational level Grid process container and grid process Security mechanism of grid App Access mechanism of general services Security mechanism of grid nodes Grid resources driver Grid router network User management Grid community Grid process container Community Service

23 Grid community grid applications grid process container grid community services Forming Virtual organization Self-organizing and managing

24 Grid process runtime entity for accessing resources on behalf of users running in the grid process container. Simplifies client programming interface Hiding resource access details Result buffering Decouple grid applications from resources

25 Grid process container provides execution and management environment for grid process Dynamically deployable

26 Grid address bus Community is built upon grid address bus. Grid address implements the binding of community resources and grid resources The location change of the grid resources will not affect the grid community and grid applications

27 Grid use environment GSML is the application development language for the end user XML based Easy to use flexible, robust access to grid resources Interactive GSML page composed of information cells GSML runtime system GSML browser GSML editor Tools

66 What is going on? CNGrid may become part of the CNGI effort National Network Research Environment will be built upon CNGrid The next five-year R&D plan is being designed. It is very possible that Grid will be one of the key issues. Grid applications are emerging. We need successful applications to show the feasibility of Grid technology New trends in Grid research is emerging Ubiquitous and pervasive Grid Mobile grid applications New operating systems, programming models, languages, and tools for Grid Business models and economical models for Grid services
