Chapter 2  Grid, Utility Computing and Clusters 

Grid Architecture

The programming models and tools define and invoke the collective layer functions. This layer is a key component in the whole grid architecture and its functioning. This is the layer that glues all the resources together in expedient exchange.

The top layer “User Applications” comprises the user applications that operate within a VO (virtual organization) environment.

The components in each layer share common characteristics but can build on new capabilities and behaviors provided by the lower layer. What we get out of this model is the flexibility with which Grid Architecture can be extended and evolved. This is the precise reason why grid architecture is taking shape and form based on the guidelines developed by the visionaries and grid standard forums.

While looking at vision and broad framework the Grid Architecture provides, many of the IT vendors are steadily designing their own strategy and services. Many IT leading vendors such as IBM, SUN, Oracle, Dell and HP offer various and diversified solutions that enable grid computing. In addition, there are many smaller companies, which focus on an innovative and specific resource, or issue and they are able to design many solutions.
