Abstract

As distributed computing has become a large-scale environment such as grid computing, software resource management is rising as the key issue. In this paper, we propose a new resource management system, which manages software resources effectively, and its prototype implementation. This system uses an existing on-demand software streaming technology to manage software resources. This system greatly reduces traditional software deployment costs and associated installation problems. In this system, an added node can also execute a requested job without installation of applications.
