There is normally the need for different grid architectures depending on the constrains: from enterprise infrastructures, to partner or outsourced ones. We present the technology that enables the creation and combination of different grid architectures, offering the possibility to create federated grids that can be easily deployed as compute utilities on grid infrastructures based on the Globus Toolkit. Then, taking advantage of the uniform and standard interface of the proposed grid-based compute utilities, we present a way to enable transparent access to virtualized grids from local computing infrastructure managed by Sun Grid Engine, although similar approaches could be followed for other resource managers
