The Scalable Computing Infrastructure project at the Information Sciences Institute of the University of Southern California investigated, developed, and deployed distributed systems software and services that enable the sharing of heterogeneous computing resources, within and across organizations, on an Internet wide basis. These services enable cooperating organizations to establish agreements for helping one another in replacing computing capacity that is unavailable due to failure. It also enables individual users and organizations to purchase computing cycles from service providers to handle infrequent excess demand of applications when the frequency of such excess demands does not justify investment in permanent capacity. Software for SCOPE is was layered on top of, and includes extensions to, the Prospero Resource Manager PRM . PRM was integrated with authentication and payment products and resource discovery services developed as part of related ISI projects.
