Abstract

This paper discusses a framework for supporting heterogeneous computing systems (hcs). HCS are physically distributed, potentially complex and evolving systems. HCS consist of a number of computers and interconnections which may have differing language and system support, and sometimes distinct computational (architectural) models. By providing a large number of computational resources to the user, HCS have the potential to allow highly efficient execution of ultra largescale applications. The paper provides a framework for addressing some of the significant problems in interoperability and resource management which result from the heterogeneity in HCS. It represents ideas and ongoing research in the area.
