INTRODUCTION TO GRID COMPUTING AND ITS APPLICATIONS

DEFINITION OF GRID:-
It is a space bar that are parallel and crossed vertically to each other.

TYPES OF GRID:-
There are many types of grid like:-

1) COMPUTATIONAL GRID:- It acts as the resource of many computers in a network to a single problem at a time.

2) DATA GRID:- It deals with the controlled sharing and management of distributed data of large amount.

3) COLLABORATIVE GRID:- It is the grid which solves collaborative problems.

4) MANUSCRIPT GRID:- This grid works well when things are presenting in large continuous blocks of text or images.

5) MODULAR GRID:- This grid works well when columns alone don’t offer enough flexibility for complex problems.

GRID ACTIVITIES:-
– Grid shares many different kinds of resources which is transparent to the end user.
– It can solve many number of problems occurred in both science and industry.
– The grid development was done in the EU-funded.

ADVANTAGES OF GRID COMPUTING:-
1) It can solve more complex problems in a very short span of time.
2) It can easily combine with other organisation.
3) It can make better use of existing hardware.

DISADVANTAGES OF GRID COMPUTING:-
1) It evolves grid software and standards.
2) It starts learning curve.
3) It is very non interactive.

ROLES OF GRID COMPUTING ORGANIZATION:-
Based on their functional role they are:-
1) Organizations developing grid standards and practices for guildline.
2) It acts as a middleware solution.
3) It is a based solution which can solve computing, data and network requirements.
4) It adopt grid concepts for commercial purpose.

GRID ARCHITECTURE:-
– It is the way where grid has been designed.
– It is described in terms of layers which has a specific function.
– The lowest layer is the network above the network layer lies the resource layer.
– The middle layer provides tools that enables various elements.
– The highest is the application layer which includes all kinds of applications.

    Grid computing is a keen technology which is now a days used by almost ever field for their fast communications. The fast moving world needs this as data transfer through the world is very important for airways communication,railway communication and for Border security. The Indian railways which was in a big loss was boost up with this formulation of grid computing which made the railway centralizes by internet reservation facility

  2. Aditya Kundan says:

    This article brings to us the concept of grid computing and its applications. We get to know that grid computing is a group computer resources from multiple locations which aim to reach a common goal. It has an edge over cluster computing by being more loosely coupled, heterogeneous and geographically dispersed. A single grid can be used for various purpose other than serving a particular application. The article talks of grid computing providing middleware solution. Middleware is a computer software which provides services to software applications which are not available from the operating system. Android provides a middleware layer including libraries that provide services such as data storage, screen display, multimedia, and web browsing. Grid computing saves time by solving more complex problems in very less time.The major disadvantage that we come across is that it is very non-interactive.We get to know the roles it has played in computing by solving data and network requirements and providing middleware solutions. The questions added at the end help to remember the important facts about grid computing. This article explores different aspects of grid computing and is very useful to the learners like us.

    This post consists about the introduction to grid computing and its application. This post is very informative can be useful for every one.

  4. Rahul Raj says:

    Really a good article. It is very useful regarding the understanding of the topic. Questions given at the end are really good and covers all important points of the article.

  5. suriya prakash says:

    Grid computing technology is not well utilized as much of cloud computing. So these kind of articles can make an idea of in what way the grid computing can be useful to us.

  6. Seetha Manoharan says:

    this article is a good one to know the latest technology and its applications.

  7. Dinesh says:

    After the introduction of CLOUD the importance of GRID is reduced but it still exist and can survive in this technology era means its advantages…
    So to know about the advantage is very important …

  8. Deepshikha Bisaria says:

    Grid computing is a new technology and used at several places. This article consits information about the grid, its advantages, disadvantages as well as its uses. This article has complete information which is very useful and is good to learn.

  9. Madhan says:

    New technology always provides better chances and this new technology also helps to grasp better opportunities.
