Reviews and Testimonials

"This reference is one the recent defining works on grid computing and contains an excellent collection of articles on technology"[...]"Authors for these articles are noted researchers drawn from an international community. Written on a tutorial level, this reference guide is an excellent starting point for those who want to know more about the history and current state on the art of grid computing."

– J.Y. Cheung, emeritus, University of Oklahoma, CHOICE (May 2012)

The papers provide a broad view of research efforts in the field, covering topics such as security, privacy, capacity testing, laboratory facilities, modeling, and language bindings. The international diversity of the research groups contributing to this volume reflects the global scope of interest in this important area.

– C. Vickery, Queens College of CUNY, CHOICE (May 2012)

The vision of grid computing inspired many scientists to get actively involve in the field along these years developing and evolving this emerging technology. This book deals with computational and data grids. The key objective is to provide grid students, practitioners, professionals, professors and researchers with an integral vision of the topic.
