The Internet provides no QoS, and from the looks of it, never will. We turn to the grid for a solution. In terms of QoS, existing grid technologies can bring a refreshing feel to the way we use the Web. The Internet evolved by interconnecting existing equipment (telephone lines) while quality and security measures were later added to it's agenda, after the issues occurred. Grid architecture is being designed in a more proactive mindset. Grids have started being used not only for scientific purposes but also for communication, collaboration and transferring data. Switching to a grid-based Web and adding nontrivial QoS to the equation is a natural step forward. The paper compares the evolution of the Internet in parallel to the evolution of grids, providing Grid QoS solutions and arguing in favor of the switch to a grid-based Web.
