Abstract : The GridRPC model [17] is an emerging standard promoted by the Global Grid Forum (GGF) that defines how to perform remote client-server computations on a distributed architecture. In this model data are sent back to the client at the end of every computation. This implies unnecessary communications when computed data are needed by an other server in further computations. Since, communication time is sometimes the dominant cost of remote computations, this cost has to be lowered. Several tools instantiate the GridRPC model such as NetSolve developed at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA, and DIET developed at LIP laboratory, ENS Lyon, France. They are usually called Network Enabled Servers (NES). In this paper, we present a discussion of the data management solutions chosen for these two NES (NetSolve and DIET) as well as experimental results.
