Chapter 2  Grid, Utility Computing and Clusters 

Computational Power

First, the processing power can be harnessed by running an application on available machines in the grid rather than locally. Second, the user application can be designed to split its computation tasks or work and execute them in parallel running on different machines or processors. The third, involves running an application many times on many different machines in the grid. Grid architecture provides a suitable software and framework to make this work.

Data and Storage

The next significant resource that an application would like to utilize is the data or storage resource. The data is available in a variety of forms such as structured databases, data files, XML documents and others. Storage is attached to various machines (or servers) in the form of directly attached file systems, or network attached file systems (NFS). By providing a robust storage array attached to multiple servers in the grid environment and creating a unified file system that is attached to multiple servers, the data or files can be made accessible to many servers and thereby to the user applications. Users do get local access to such data. It also becomes easier for the users to reference the data in the grid.

In the case of structured database systems, the data can be made available in two forms: the Clustered Database and the Federation of Databases. In a clustered solution, the same data can be accessed by referring to any server in the cluster configuration. Federation of database is more like an association of data to form a comprehensive database. In a single query, user application is able to access multiple database resources.
