Today, many institutions and corporations are involved in various grid researches that involve improvement in concepts, protocols, applications, methods, and tools. To help capture the rapid growth in grid concepts and applications and chart the future direction in this field, a resource compiling current advances in grid computing is essential. The Handbook of Research on Grid Technologies and Utility Computing: Concepts for Managing Large-Scale Applications provides a compendium of terms, definitions, and explanations of concepts, issues, processes, and trends in grid technology. As the first book collection of its kind, this reference features current articles presenting comprehensive coverage of grid technologies valuable to any researcher, practitioner, or academician in grid computing.
