Abstract

Cloud Computing and GRID computing are two different but similar paradigms for managing large sets of distributed computing resources, and there have been many efforts that aim at integrating them. The approach should provide to final users a simple way to manage their resources and to interact with the offered services. This paper proposes the architecture, which offers a set of services able not only to create Virtual Clusters (VCs) that become part of the GRID, but also to predict by simulation the performance of user applications. It also presents the PerfCloudClient, a user-friendly client with graphical interface to the services.
