    The Grid is an heterogeneous and dynamic environment which enables distributed computation. This makes it a technology prone to failures. Some related work uses replication to overcome failures in a set of independent ...
  • GRID superscalar: a programming model for the Grid 

    Sirvent Pardell, Raül (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2009-02-03)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Durant els darrers anys el Grid ha sorgit com una nova plataforma per la computació distribuïda. La tecnologia Gris permet unir diferents recursos de diferents dominis administratius i formar un superordinador virtual amb ...
