  • survey of grid resource management system;
  • taxonomy of market-oriented systems;
  • utility grid infrastructural components


This chapter summarizes the recent advances toward the vision of utility grids. It starts with an overview of grid and utility computing, and specifies all the requirements of a utility grid. The chapter presents an abstract model to conceptualize essential infrastructure needed to support this vision. It then provides a taxonomy and survey of the current market-oriented and system-oriented schedulers examining the contribution and the out-standing issues of each system in terms of utility grid’s requirements. The chapter describes the gaps based on the taxonomy and survey of market-oriented systems.
