Emerging pervasive wide-area Grid computing environments are enabling a new generation of applications that are based on seamless aggregation and interactions of resources, services, and information. However, Grid applications and the underlying Grid computing environment are inherently large, heterogeneous, and dynamic, resulting in significant development, configuration, and management challenges. Addressing these challenges has led researchers to consider autonomic self-managing solutions, which are based on strategies used by biological systems to deal with similar challenges. This chapter motivates and introduces autonomic Grid computing. It also introduces Project AutoMate and describes its key components. The goal of Project Automate is to investigate conceptual models and implementation architectures that can enable the development and execution of such self-managing Grid applications. Two application scenarios enabled by AutoMate are described.
