Using Cloud Computing Resources in Grid Systems: An Integration of Amazon Web Services into UNICORE 6

Maik Doleys


The cloud computing paradigm overcomes its infancy. While the demand of resources for scalable computational systems increases, the integration of cloud computing resources into grid systems can become a potential extension for grid systems. This thesis presents possible designs that integrate cloud computing resources into grid systems. General requirements and aspects for such integration designs are provided and discussed. Furthermore, we implement a design that automatically integrates resources from the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud computing environment into the Uniform Interface to Computing Reources (UNICORE) 6 grid environment. This implementation has been validated with test specifications verifies, which shows the possibility of extending grid resources with resources of a cloud environment.
