Building a Grid with Perl, Part 2: Exchanging information

In this tutorial series, we’re using Perl to build a resource grid that stores and manipulates photos and images. Communication drives the grid process, and in this tutorial we’ll look at the communication requirements in our grid, including the need for efficient data transfer of the large files we’ll be exchanging, the background communication requirements for managing and using the grid, and the effects of the communication system on the network performance, bandwidth requirements and other issues. We’ll also look at the different modules that we’ll be using to implement our grid communication system.Read the full Tutorial.
