Abstract

While active networks provide new solutions for the deployment of dynamic services in the network by exposing network processing resources, logistical networks focus on exposing storage resources inside networks by optimizing the global scheduling of data transport, and data storage. In this paper, we show how active and logistical environments working together can improve Grid middleware and provide new and innovative high-level services for Grid applications. We validate and experiment this approach combining the Internet Backplane Protocol suite with the Tamanoir Active Node environment. Our target architecture is the French e-Toile Grid infrastructure [1] based on high performance backbone (VTHD) [2].
