Glue, Gaia, and the services grid: : “Graham Glass, the wizard behind The Mind Electric, is ‘100% sure’ that grid computing is the future. To prepare for it he’s building Gaia, which in its first incarnation will be used to do simple, lightweight clustering and load-balancing of web services. Those services, initially, will be Java-based and written in TME’s SOAP toolkit.”
May be interesting to look at Gaia as we think about how to build a component framework for the enterprise applications using Web Services. We can think of the Thick Servers as forming a P2P network, a computing grid.
