resource broker

The DataMiningGrid Resource Broker service mediates between three entities: the owner of the computational or storage resource, the owner of the data, and the user of the data mining tool that processes the data. This service has two main interfaces. First, the resource broker extensively uses existing grid toolkits such as Globus and Condor to negotiate with resources. Second, the resource broker service drives the execution of mining tasks on top of the resources.

The DataMiningGrid Resource Broker is based on GridBus.
