grid resource management, DOGMA-NG, supercomputing


As the Internet began its exponential growth into a global information environment, software was often unreliable, slow and had difficulty in interoperating with other systems. Supercomputing node counts also continue to follow high growth trends. Supercomputer and grid resource management software must mature into a reliable computational platform in much the same way that web services matured for the Internet. DOGMA The Next Generation (DOGMA-NG) improves on current resource management approaches by using tested off-the-shelf enterprise technologies to build a robust, scalable, and extensible resource management platform. Distributed web service technologies constitute the core of DOGMA-NG’s design and provide fault tolerance and scalability. DOGMA-NG’s use of open standard web technologies and efficient management algorithms promises to reduce management time and accommodate the growing size of future supercomputers. The use of web technologies also provides the opportunity for a new parallel programming paradigm, enterprise web services parallel programming, that also gains benefit from the scalable, robust component architecture.
