Although Cloud and Grid technologies offer unlimited computational power and storage capacity for scientific research and business activities in heterogeneous areas all over the world, actually using these technologies requires a closer interaction between various types of instruments accessible from the grid, on the one hand, and the classical grid infrastructure, on the other. The Instrument Element is a new Cloud/Grid component that solves the problem of coordinating interaction between the grid's instruments and infrastructure. This software provides the computational/data infrastructure with an abstraction of real instruments, and gives users a more interactive interface with which to control them. The Tiny Instrument Element is a piece of skeleton software that makes it easy to expose the functioning of a generic instrument via a Web Service interface. The term "tiny" refers not to the kind of instrument, but rather to the software implementation. The design is kept simple and intuitive, but hopefully not minimal.
