ABSTRACT Recent developments in the field of Grid computing reveal the strong need of managing metadata on much higher level than it used to be done previously. Standard solutions like MDS provide relatively efficient means of managing Grid resources on a low level basis, usually available for Grid experts and simple search tools. However in order to manage resources among multiple Virtual Organizations composed of highly heterogeneous entities, joining and leaving the Grid in a dynamic manner, a more flexible way of describing and managing their resources is required. In this paper, a solution to this problem based on ontologies and distributed knowledge base is presented. The knowledge base distributed architecture is discussed with the flexibility and fault-tolerance outlined. The performance evaluation for typical use cases shows, that ontology separation and various configurations of GOM make it useful for managing knowledge in multiple domains.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we describe a semi-automatic programming framework for supporting users with managing the deployment of distributed applications along with storing large amounts of data in order to maintain Quality of Service in highly dynamic and distributed environments, e.g., Grid. The Polish national PL-GRID project aims to provide Polish science with both hardware and software infrastructures which will allow scientists to perform complex simulations and in-silico experiments on a scale greater than ever before. We highlight the issues and challenges related to data storage strategies that arise at the analysis stage of user requirements coming from different areas of science. Next we present a solution to the discussed issues along with a description of sample usage scenarios. At the end we provide remarks on the current status of the implementation work and some results from the tests performed.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a brief overview of the work on translation of Common Information Model (CIM) to Web Ontology Language (OWL) standard. The main motivation for the work is given, along with discussion of major issues faced during this work. The paper contains also comparison of existing approaches to conversion of CIM to OWL and presents the CIM2OWL tool that performs the conversion of CIM schema and allows convertion of CIM instances - representing for instance configurations of particular systems - to OWL individuals.

    ABSTRACT: As modern SOA and Grid infrastructures are being moved from academic and research environments to more challenging business and commercial applications, such issue as control of resource sharing become of crucial importance. In order to manage and share resources within distributed environments the idea of Virtual Organizations (VO) emerged, which enables sharing only subsets of resources among partners of such a VO within potentially larger settings. This paper describes the Framework for Intelligent Virtual Organizations (FiVO), focusing on its functionality of enforcing security (Authentication and Authorization) in dynamically deployed Virtual Organizations. The paper presents the overall architecture of the framework along with different security settings which FiVO can support within one Virtual Organization.
