Abstract

Grid infrastructures are maturing to a point where they are attracting the interest of businesses in many application domains. While many large-scale on-line gaming platforms exist, they fail to take into consideration the potential business to business relationships when it comes to dynamic on-line game hosting. This work presents an initial implementation of the edutain@grid architecture to support business value chains identified for on-line gaming and e-learning application hosting. An analysis of business actors and value chains is presented briefly before a detailed description of the edutain@grid implementation. We also consider first results concerning how best to construct appropriate value chains using bipartite and bi-directional Service Level Agreements.
