Nondedicated clusters are currently at the forefront of the development of high performance computing systems. These clusters are relatively intolerant of hardware failures and cannot manage dynamic cluster membership efficiently. This report presents the logical design of an innovative self discovery service that provides for automated cluster management and resource discovery. The proposed service has an ability to share or recover unused computing resources, and to adapt to transient conditions autonomically, as well as the capability of providing dynamically scalable virtual computers on demand.
