The continuous developments in information and communication technology have recently led to the appearance of distributed computing environments, which comprise several, and different sources of large volumes of data and several computing units. The most prominent example of a distributed environment is the Internet, where increasingly more databases and data streams appear that deal with several areas, such as meteorology, oceanography, economy and others. In addition the Internet constitutes the communication medium for geographicallydistributed information systems, as for example the earth observing system of NASA (eos.gsfc.nasa.gov). Other examples of distributed environments that have been developed in the last few years are sensor networks for process monitoring and grids where a large number of computing and storage units are interconnected over a highspeed network.
