What is grid ComputingGrid Computing is the field of computing that involves amalgamating hardware and software resources at different locations using standard and open protocols so as to achieve high power of computing. Security and reliability. Grid based system don’t require centralized control and efficiently decrease response time. Grid Computing can be done in various forms so as to achieve corresponding results.

  • Problems that need more than one system to be solved such as climate modelling can count on the distributed nature of grid computing.
  • Problems that involves intensive calculations such as mapping can also be solved using grid computing.

Grid Computing

Since solutions to cryptographic ciphers need high computational power, they’re another great application for grid. Grid based systems can also be used at places where they’re a short-term requirements of certain resources that a system is unable to meet locally. Usually grid computing systems are formed by grouped called grid communities. A Public grid enables general public to use computational resources, While a private grid general public to use computational resources , While a private grid enables general public to use computational resources, While a private grid public to use computational resources, While a private grid gives access to only group members.

Some of the applications include:

  • Virtual worlds
  • Weather simulations
  • Analyzing DNA and genomes
  • Rendering the latest animated Hollywood flick
  • Searching for intelligent life
