An Improved Method to Deploy Cache Servers in Software Defined Network-based Information Centric Networking for Big Data

Big data involves a large amount of data generation, storage, transfer from one place to another, and analysis to extract meaningful information. Information centric networking (ICN) is an infrastructure that transfers big data from one node to …


A Journey into Bitcoin Metadata

Besides recording transfers of currency, the Bitcoin blockchain is being used to save metadata — i.e. arbitrary pieces of data which do not affect transfers of bitcoins. This can be done by using different techniques, and for different purposes.


SimSim: A Service Discovery Method Preserving Content Similarity and Spatial Similarity in P2P Mobile Cloud

Mobile cloud has become a new computing paradigm such that services are accessible in any place and at any time. Despite its promising prospect, challenges arise due to unreliable channel condition and limited bandwidth in wireless communication …

About this journal

The Journal of Grid Computing explores an emerging technology that enables large-scale resource sharing problem solving within distributed, loosely coordinated groups sometimes termed "virtual organizations". Coverage includes protocols, security, scaling and more.

Although the advantages of this technology for classes of applications have been acknowledged, research in a variety of disciplines is needed to broaden the applicability and scope of the current body of knowledge. This journal fills the need, covering such topics as protocols, middleware, and services, security, discovery, sharing, scaling, and more.

Discussion extends to advanced technologies for collaborative work, information sharing and problem solving.
