High Performance Grid Computing
Ahmed Ibrahim, Assistant Prof., Tanta University, Egypt
Computational grids allow the federation of significant computational and storage resources to solve challenging problems in science, engineering, medicine, finance, and entertainment. Involvement of multi-core platforms and wireless communications in the traditional grids comprised of clusters, workstations, and supercomputers pose new challenges to manage the grids and open new opportunities in using them. The talk will highlight most aspects of grid computing, with a focus on performance, in areas of: Applications, Benchmarking, Infrastructure, Management and Scheduling, Partitioning and Load Balancing, and Programming Models.
