Abstract

 

The concept of grid has emerged as a new approach to high performance distributed computing infrastructure. In general, Grids represent a new way of managing and organizing computer networks and mainly their deeper resource sharing. Grid computing has evolved into an important discipline within the computer industry by differentiating itself from distributed computing through an increased focus on resource sharing, coordination, manageability and high performance.

 

Key words: Computing infrastructure, grid computing, resource sharing, computer networks.
