10 Grids for Complex Problem Solving, 29 January 2003

11 What is the future...

12 Grids for Complex Problem Solving, 29 January 2003 Collaborative working...

13 Grids for Complex Problem Solving, 29 January 2003 Networks –need good connectivity at low price –QoS is a mandatory feature (need to dedicate BW according to criticality of data streams i.e. video or RT needs) Grid Middleware –security is probably the most important issue in the context of VOs –but directory services, data management, scheduling and brokering are obviously important (eBusiness) Anatomy of the system...

14 Grids for Complex Problem Solving, 29 January 2003 Applications –at the client level: need for light client (mobile users) –applications coupling (soft/soft or soft/hard) requires some specific middleware data-fusion data-mining –powerful GUI 3D RT capabilities multi-modal GUI Anatomy of the system...

15 Grids for Complex Problem Solving, 29 January 2003 Current grids are static, need to be more dynamic –virtual organization can be O(2) to O(1000) –lifetime from minutes to years –admin policies shall cross the domains –dynamic behavior (membership, status, …) –scalable in term of administration –resource discovery –innovative license management policy

16 Grids for Complex Problem Solving, 29 January 2003 Security is a MAJOR concern –how to efficiently protect our data while granting specific access to our resources to providers/suppliers ? –need to have a fine grain access policy while granting access to community that can be large

17 Grids for Complex Problem Solving, 29 January 2003 Research issues

18 Grids for Complex Problem Solving, 29 January 2003 –Manageable (interoperable/scalable) security solutions for VOs –Need for a set of standard industrial applications (e.g. CAE, PDM, 3D imagery) to be gridified (vertically integrated) with grids (the foundations are there, but the applications arent using them!) –Need for generic enabling VO services such as community accounting & billing services and industrial strength basic collaboration services

19 Grids for Complex Problem Solving, 29 January 2003 –WANTED: distributed operating systems à la Mosix or Kerrighed. A Grid Virtual Machine providing a compact & common set of protocols ! –Convergence of Grid computing & cycle stealing approach (more than P2P) in order to accommodate high performance collaborative applications –Integration of Knowledge Based Engineering tools within generic/specific Grid based Problem Solving Environments

20 Grids for Complex Problem Solving, 29 January 2003 Questions ? Is your company already using Grid technologies ? Are your design processes collaborative & made of multiple participants ? What do you see as the main barrier for using Grid computing ?
