Efforts for building the future Internet are currently starting in many countries all over the world. The new efforts encourage all manner of research and experimentation, from incremental improvements of existing network architectures and protocols up to and including clean-slate designs for the future Internet. The key measure for how well the future Internet is performing will be in its ability and efficiency for satisfying the demands from the users. This implies that the future Internet must take into account heterogeneous requirements from myriad applications. Grid computing, thanks to its highly heterogeneous applications, is in an ideal position for providing valuable information about such application requirements.
