The purpose of this document is to explore the feasibility of a decentralized system for grid computing. A proof-of-concept grid computing system was created based on the GridSolve computing environment and multicast domain name server with service discovery. This experimental grid computing environment showed that reasonable results can be achieved in a decentralized environment. Using these results suggestions are made for future research in this area.
