Abstract

Current computation technologies (from cluster computing to Grid computing ) are focused on collaboration, data sharing, and cycle stealing modes of interaction among dynamic and geographically distributed organizations. During the literature survey of doctoral research two computing paradigms: Grid computing and Distributed Shared Memory are explored. There has been extensive research in individual implementations of both but very few citations have proposed combined implementations. This paper is focused on implementing SMIG (Shared Memory Integrated with Grid), a model which integrates both paradigms. The paper discusses the design principles, architecture and execution in of various applications like Matrix multiplication, Merge sort and Bucket sort on SMIG volunteers. Based on the analysis of implementation results it was inferred that SMIG model is feasible, it can exploit resources in grid environment. In future it is proposed to execute the same applications on SMIG with dedicated machines and compare the results obtained on SMIG with volunteers.
