Book: Patterns: Emerging Patterns for Enterprise Grids

Another book from IBM Redbooks department, this time on grid computing designing issues:

Patterns are great vehicles to capture components with a high degree of commonality among engagements and to express their interrelationships. Although most enterprise grid engagements are typically deployed with solutions that could be categorized as “one-of-a-kind”, there is enough information gathered today to allow us to devise a set of common components among them and to derive enterprise grid patterns. The proposed patterns are based on grid solutions designed for enterprise clients over the past couple of years and are therefore representative of the current use of grid technologies in the enterprise today. They may not address all emerging grid technologies or be representative of research grids.

You can use this redbook as a helping guide for your grid solution design.
