Efficient management of massive data sets is akey aspect in typical grid and e-science applications. To thisend, the benefits of employing database technologies in suchapplications has been identified since the early days of gridcomputing, which aims at enabling coordinated resource sharing,knowledge generation and problem solving in dynamic,multi-institutional virtual organizations through a distributed,scalable, adaptive and autonomous infrastructure. Nowadays,databases are playing an increasingly important role, bothwhen the data is (semi-) structured and when it is stored in flatfiles. This survey paper discusses in detail existing databaseorientedgrid middleware. It focuses on several complementaryaspects, such as dynamicity, autonomy, resilience to failures,and performance, and presents the characteristics, capabilitiesand limitations of existing solutions.
