How web community organisation can help grid computing

Mowbray, Miranda


Keyword(s): grid; peer-to-peer; community practices

Abstract: OurGrid is a web-based community whose members can use each others' spare computing power. When an OurGrid member is not using his own computer, it can be used by any other member. This paper describes how the community aspects of OurGrid have been crucial for its success. It argues that grid economies, which provide another method for sharing computing power, might also benefit from having a web-based community structure. Publication Info: International J. Web Based Communities. Vol. 3, no.1, 2007
