A centralized optical burst switching (OBS)-based grid architecture is proposed. Three scheduling strategies, for the resources on the grid level, the network level, and the OBS network level, respectively, are presented and analyzed. The overall grid performance and the network performance under different scheduling strategies are analyzed and compared by simulation.
