Self-* Grid: Dynamic Virtual Organizations for schools, families, and all

Self-* Grid: Dynamic Virtual Organizations for schools, families, and all

Objective

Grid4All aims to enable domestic users and non-profit organisations such as schools and small enterprises, to share their resources and to access massive grid resources when needed, envisioning a future in which access to resources is democratised and cooperative. Examples include home users of image editing application, school projects like volcanic eruption simulations, or small businesses doing data mining. Cooperation examples include joint homework between pupils, or international collaboration.Grid4All goals entail a system pooling large amounts of cheap resources (connecting to commercial cluster providers when needed); a dynamic system satisfying spikes of demand; using self-management techniques to scale; supporting isolated, secure, dynamic, geographically distributed user groups and using secure peer-to-peer techniques to federate large numbers of small-scale resources into large-scale grids.We target small communities such as domestic users, schools and SMEs (for-profit or non-profit), harnessing their resources added to resources from operated IT centres, to form on-demand service oriented grids, avoiding preconfigured infrastructures. The technical issues addressed are security, support for multiple administrative and management authorities, p2p techniques for self-management/adaptivity/dynamicity, on-demand resource allocation, heterogeneity, and fault tolerance.The proof of concept applications include: e-learning tools for collaborative editing in schools and digital content processing service accessible by end residential users.
