AbstractThe Egg project provides a vision and implementation of how heterogeneous computational requirements will be supported within a single grid and a compelling reason to explain why computational grids will thrive. Environment computing, which allows a user to specify properties that a compute environment must satisfy in order to support the user’s computation, provides a how. Economic principles, allowing resource owners, users, and other stakeholders to make value and policy statements, provides a why. The Egg project introduces a language for defining software environments (egg shell), a general type for grid objects (the cache), and a currency (the egg). The Egg platform resembles an economically driven Internetwide Unix system with egg shell playing the role of a scripting language and caches playing the role of a global file system, including an initial collection of devices.
