Abstract: We define grid computing as distributed computing performed transparently across multiple administrative domains. Transparency has been lacking from more or less all existing distributed computing infrastructures which might aspire to call themselves grids. A general computational grid should provide facile access to many different types of resources to enable users to pick and choose those required to achieve their intended scientific objectives. However, such demands have proved hard to meet to date and as a result very few scientists have wanted to get near so-called grid technology. We describe how a lightweight web-service based hosting environment residing in a WSRF::Lite container forms a potentially powerful tool for the computational scientist interested in engaging in activities worthy of the name grid computing.
