The Grid Computing Information Centre (GRID Infoware: http://www.gridcomputing.com) aims to promote the development and advancement of technologies that provide seamless and scalable access to wide-area distributed resources. Computational Grids enable the sharing, selection, and aggregation of a wide variety of geographically distributed computational resources (such as supercomputers, compute clusters, storage systems, data sources, instruments, people) and presents them as a single, unified resource for solving large-scale compute and data intensive computing applications (e.g, molecular modelling for drug design, brain activity analysis, and high energy physics). This idea is analogous to electric power network (grid) where power generators are distributed, but the users are able to access electric power without bothering about the source of energy and its location.
What is Grid ? How is it different from Clusters/P2P ? and so on...
