A Scalable Approach to Network Enabled Servers
This paper presents the architecture of DIET (Distributed Interactive Engineering Toolbox), a hierarchical set of components to build Network Enabled Server applications in a Grid environment. This environment is built on top of different tools which are able to locate an appropriate server depending of the client’s request, the data location and the dynamic performance characteristics of the system.
