Reviews and Testimonials

It is my pleasure to congratulate the editors of The International Journal of Grid and High Performance Computing (IJGHPC) for a job well done. The quality of the papers and the scope of recent topics provide the reader like me with an up-to-the-moment resource in the area of Grid and High Performance Computing. This journal is unique as it brings together in one place relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest empirical research findings in the area. These topics are becoming ubiquitous, viz., throughput performance, reliability, scalability, security and many other categories including societal, economical and business aspects.

– Professor Frank Zhigang Wang, Chairman, IEEE Computer Society, UK & Republic of Ireland Chapter, Head, School of Computing, University of Kent, UK

With the ever changing landscape in high performance computing, I keep pace with new developments through the highly valuable resource - The International Journal of Grid and High Performance Computing


As a constant reader of IJGHPC, from its very beginning in early 2009, I highly value the breadth and depth of the scientific articles on HPC, Grids and Clouds, that cover current theory and practice, challenges, and problems, especially implementations.

– Prof. Wolfgang Gentzsch, HPC Entrepreneur & Executive Consultant, Regensburg Area, GermanyT

here has been a huge demand to meet the standards for developing a heterogeneous distributed model to manipulate hardware, software and datasets. IJGHPC bridges the gap in a distributed environment among researchers, engineers & public to establish a smooth communication, resource discovery, sharing of resources and collaboration in an effective manner. The journal is primarily devoted to promote, coordinate and integrate several developments in the fields of grid and cloud computing.

– Dr. S. Hariharan B.E.,M.E., Ph.D., Associate Professor and Head, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, TRP Engineering College (SRM Group), Tamilnadu, India.
