J.L. Vazquez-Poletti, E. Huedo, R.S. Montero, I.M. Llorente. Coordinated Harnessing of the IRISGrid and EGEE Testbeds with GridWay. Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing, 66(5):763-771, 2006.


Since the late 1990s, we have witnessed an extraordinary development of Grid technologies. Nowadays, different Grids are being deployed within the context of a growing number of national and transnational research projects. However, the coexistence of those different infrastructures involves two challenging issues, namely: (i) simultaneous and coordinated use of resources from different Grids, from the end user perspective; and (ii) the simultaneous contribution of resources to different Grids, from the resource owner perspective. In this paper, we demonstrate that a decentralized and end-to-end scheduling and execution system can efficiently interoperate different Grids. In particular, we evaluate the coordinated use of the EGEE and IRISGrid testbeds in the execution of a Bioinformatics application. Results show the feasibility of building loosely coupled computational Grid environments only based on Globus services, while obtaining non-trivial levels of quality of service, in terms of performance and reliability. Such approach allows a straightforward resource sharing since the resources are accessed by using de facto standard protocols and interfaces
