Grid computing, in the commercial space, builds upon a set of management disciplines, which aims at mapping available resource capabilities to application workloads, according to requirements these workloads depend upon and to business goals they must fulfill. This paper illustrates innovative technologies, developed at IBM Research, that address key issues found in commercial grid environments. These technologies fall into four main areas, workload virtualization, information virtualization, provisioning and orchestration, and application development.
