The authors identify commercial grids as an emerging specialization of grid technology, and identify the need to define and satisfy service-level agreements (SLAs) as a fundamental requirement. They argue that SLAs? unique requirements impose the need for a dynamic offload infrastructure. This article describes the requirements such an infrastructure must meet, and describes a prototype implementation.

Index Terms:
Commercial grid, service level agreements, SLA, dynamic offload, autonomic computing
