  abstract= "Distributed Shared Memory (DSM) has many advantages in
     heterogeneousenvironments, such as geographically distant
     clusters or The Grid. These includes:locality utilization
     and replication transparency. The fact that processes
     communicateindirectly through memory rather than directly,
     is giving DSM these advantages.This paper presents the
     design of Global PastSet (GPS) which is a DSM systemtargeted
     at global area networks. GPS is based on the DSM system
     PastSet [1] that hasbeen very effective in homogeneous
     cluster environments. GPS utilizes consistencycontrol
     migration and replication to scale in heterogeneous
     environments. This hasresulted in a token-based mutual
     exclusion algorithm that considers locality and analgorithm
     for locating replicas. GPS has been simulated in
     multi-cluster environmentswith up to 2048 nodes with very
     promising results."
