The concept of coupling geographically distributed (high-end) resources for solving large-scale problems is becoming increasingly popular, forming what is popularly called grid computing. The management of resources in the grid environment becomes complex as they are (geographically) distributed, heterogeneous in nature, owned by different individuals/organizations each having their own resource management policies and different access-and-cost models. In this scenario, a number of alternatives exist while creating a framework for grid resource management. In this paper, we discuss the three alternative models-hierarchical, abstract owner, and market-for grid resource management architecture..
