This paper addresses a resource selection problem for applications that update data in enterprise grid systems. The problem is insufficiently addressed as most of the existing resource selection approaches in grid environments primarily deal with read-only job. We propose a simple yet efficient algorithm that deals with the complexity of resource selection problem in enterprise grid systems. The problem is formulated as a Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) problem. Our proposed algorithm hides the complexity of resource selection process without neglecting important components that affect job response time. The difficulty on estimating job response time is captured by representing them in terms of different QoS criteria levels at each resource. Our experiments show that the proposed algorithm achieves very good results with good system performance as compared to existing algorithms.
