Grid Computing: Towards a Global Interconnected Infrastructure (Computer Communications and Networks)

Buy

Grid Computing was a vision of using and sharing computers and data in the early 1990s. The integration, coordination, and sharing of computer resources which are geographically disperse among different physical domains and organizations became an every day reality. This emerging infrastructure aims to provide a mechanism for sharing and coordinating the use of heterogeneous computing resources.

The term “Grid” is used as an analogy with the electric power grid, which provides pervasive access to electricity. Grid Computing has its roots in e-Science and has evolved from parallel, distributed, and high-performance computing. Grid Computing is a dominating technology that has undoubtedly changed the landscape of computer science. During these years, Grid Computing achieved to overcome every obstacle and challenge, and comprised an incontrovertible paradigm for future computer networks.

Up to now, this new evolving technology achieved to provide to its users the ability to utilize at maximum the existing resources across a network. Grid Computing takes collective advantage of the vast improvements that have occurred over the last few years, in microprocessor speeds, optical communications, storage capacity, the World Wide Web, and the Internet. A set of standards and protocols are being developed that completely disaggregate current compute platforms and distribute them across a network as resources that can be called into action by any eligible user or machine at any time.

The continuous progress in scientific research demanded for computational power leading to more and more powerful computer platforms in order to be able to solve high-resource demanding scientific problems. Many research projects and varied applications such as astrophysics, biology, chemistry, drug discovery, ecological modeling, mathematics, operations research, physics, and complex simulations are now driven by Grid Computing.

The explosive growth of computer science influenced the Information Technologies (IT) departments which have a vital role in shaping and conducting businesses orientation. The organizations focused on a more efficient utilization of their IT resources leveraging competition through a flexible and cost-effective infrastructure that fosters innovation and collaboration.
