In 2005, Jiageng Li and David Cords put forward a method of extending globus's Metacomputing Directory Service (MDS) [7] to solve the problem of scalable authorization in grid dynamic environment.
They propose state-of-the-art algorithms that are designed to be used in a variety of applications and libraries, covering parallel and distributed Java for heterogeneous systems, the optimization of dense linear algebra algorithms on heterogeneous machines, distributed process networks with COBRA, parallel adaptive mesh refinement with load balancing in a heterogeneous cluster, evaluation of DIET hierarchical metacomputing architecture, and utilization-based techniques for strategically mapping heterogeneous applications into the HiPer-D heterogeneous computing system.

standards: choosing commonly used tools and following already established metacomputing standards;
At Intel's Fall Developer Forum, Gelsinger said that "we need to initiate, lead, and as an industry come together to put these key components in place, the common protocols, driving the ease of use, addressing very valid issues in the area of security, making sure peer-to-peer environments are robust and scalable." The P2PWG includes about 20 (mostly small) companies, including Apple Soup, Applied MetaComputing, CenterSpan, Distributed Science, Dotcast, Enfish, Engenia, Entropia, Groove Networks, Life Cycle, Mangosoft, Popular Power, Static, United Devices, and Uprizer.

This methodology is a natural component of metacomputing, see [8] and related articles in the November 1998 issue of Communications.
