What is Grid Computing?

Post  John23 on Mon Sep 12, 2011 1:01 am

Grid computing is the combination of computer resources from multiple administrative domains for a common goal. Grid computing (or the use of a computational grid) is applying the resources of many computers in a network to a single problem at the same time - usually to a scientific or technical problem that requires a great number of computer processing cycles or access to large amounts of data.

Grid computing appears to be a promising trend for three reasons: (1) its ability to make more cost-effective use of a given amount of computer resources, (2) as a way to solve problems that can't be approached without an enormous amount of computing power, and (3) because it suggests that the resources of many computers can be cooperatively and perhaps synergistically harnessed and managed as a collaboration toward a common objective.

According to me Grid web hosting means that hundreds of web sites on one server share the same bandwidth and storage provided by other servers. In other words, websites no longer are tied to a single server in grid web hosting.
