Applications of Swarm Intelligence Techniques in Grid Computing


Grid computing is a specialized form of distributed computing where we form a grid of resources which act as a single system for multiple end users. Since we are dealing with multiple resources and an enormous number of users requests at one point of time; optimization is of utmost importance to the grid computing. This is where swarm intelligence techniques can help researchers and organizations to enhance resource utilization and efficient muti-request processing. This paper discusses swarm intelligence techniques used in enhancing the efficiency of grid computing problem areas and also proposes future research areas in grid computing where swarm can be used.
