Abstract—The structure of a grid system should be such that even a small personal computer can avail the facility of many supercomputers at a time. A grid is formulated by the number of supercomputers are used and participated in the computations. Grid computing has no straightforward way to control and administer grids dynamically. Grid operating systems bear the promise to become the new frontier in management of complex distributed computing systems and services that will offer for a single node: abstraction from hardware, and secure resource sharing with illusion dynamically by integrating grid capabilities into the kernel. It will integrate existing host operating system with a grid through an interoperating interface with expert dynamic OS on different versions of Grid virtual machine implementing grid nodes. Its goal is the creation of parallel processing pervasive grid computing platform that facilitates the rapid deployment and easy maintenance of grids of preferring peer to peer topology.
Index Terms—Grid operating systems, distributed computing, host operating system, Expert dynamic OS, Grid virtual machine.
