Middleware solutions for Heterogeneous Distributes System aim to respond to high requirements of large scale distributed applications related to performance, flexibility, extensibility, portability, availability, reliability, safety, security, trust, and scalability, in the context of high number of users, and large geographic distribution of heterogeneous hardware and software resources. The solutions used in the design, implementation, and deployment of systems with such capabilities are based on monitoring, scheduling, optimization, sharing, balancing, discovery, and synchronization methods and techniques that are continuously improved. New services and functionality are added to the middleware to ease the development of new and highly demanding applications with low cost and high performance. New architectures and policies are designed to incorporate solutions for the management of data, resources, tasks, and applications, ensure fault tolerance, accounting, service on demand, and other functions required by user communities to operate effectively a shared services environment.

The scientific contributions targeted by this special issue refer to Cluster Computing, Grid Computing, Peer-to-Peer Computing, and Cloud Computing all involving elements of heterogeneity. These computing distributed systems are often characterized by a variety of resources that may or may not be coupled with specific platforms or environments. All these topics challenge today researchers, due to the strong dynamic behavior of the user communities and of resource collections they use. The special issue is oriented on computer and information science that develops and optimizes the advanced system software, networking, and data management components. We consider that our special issue will come with new and novel added value in the domain of Middleware Services for Heterogeneous Distributed Computing.
