Dynasoar is an infrastructure for dynamically deploying Web Services over a Grid or the Internet. It enables an approach to Grid computing in which distributed applications are built around services instead of jobs. Dynasoar automatically deploys a service on an available host if no existing deployments exist, or if performance requirements cannot be met by existing deployments. This is analogous to remote job scheduling, but offers the opportunity for improved performance as the cost of moving and deploying the service can be shared across the processing of many messages. A key feature of the architecture is that it makes a clear separation between Web Service Providers, who offer services to consumers, and Host Providers, who offer computational resources on which services can be deployed, and messages sent to them processed. Separating these two components and defining their interactions, opens up the opportunity for interesting new organisational/ business models. © 2006 IEEE.
