Heterogenous resource description and management in generic resource federation frameworks
Resource federation is a concept for sharing information and communication technology (ICT) resources beyond administrative domains. The aim is to implement some common service drawing upon the resources committed by participating organizations. This concept is currently applied in a number of projects to provide large scale experimental facilities serving Future Internet research and development. In this paper we show how federated distributed resources can be described in terms of a common information model to support distributed resource management and Future Internet experimentation.
