Capital Radio is the UK's leading commercial radio group [CapitalRadio], with greater revenues and profits than any
other commercial radio company. This is achieved through a total of 20 analogue radio licences broadcasting to over
half of the UK's adult population. These 20 analogue licenses have a near one-to-one correspondence with physical
radio studios located across the length and breadth of the UK. Although Capital Radio Group has a large number of
separate offices within the country, each radio station has operations that are both centrally and locally directed. There
are specific sites that perform specialised functions for the group where their actions can affect the behaviour of sub-
group of offices. For example, the London office is responsible for sales of National advertising campaigns. These sales
affect the commercial airtime of local radio stations. Another example would be of a single radio station promoting a
new artist or new material that is picked up by other stations. These are two simple but common examples that illustrate
that the flow of information around the group is multidirectional. A central server solution is inappropriate due to


quality of service requirements. First, the stations need to be able to operate in isolation even in the event of network or
server failures. Secondly, many data transfers are time critical that could not be met by a centralised architecture in peak
conditions. These requirements to have collaborating islands of networks have lead to the consideration of data grid
technologies to solve these problems.
