 en Qualities of Grid Computing That Can Last For Ages
Asagba, Prince Oghenekaro & Ogheneovo, Edward E.

Abstract

Grid computing has emerged as an important new field, distinguished from conventional distributed computing based on its abilities on large-scale resource sharing and services. And it will even become more popular because of the benefits it can offer over the traditional supercomputers, and other forms of distributed computing. This paper examines these benefits and also discusses why grid computing will continue to enjoy greater popularity and patronage in many years to come. Finally, we discussed about virtual organization (VO) as one of the key characteristics of Grid computing.
