In this chapter, two algorithms have been presented for supporting efficient data transfer in the Grid environment. From a node’s perspective, a multiple data transfer channel can be formed by selecting some other nodes as relays in data transfer. One algorithm requires the sender to be aware of the global connection information while another does not. Experimental results indicate that both algorithms can transfer data efficiently under various circumstances.
