GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris shares his thoughts about ISV Callidus, whose TrueComp solution allows companies to use Grid computing to speed up the compute-intensive aspects of the Enterprise Incentive Management process. According to Harris, the ISV community as a whole could take a page from Callidus' book when it comes to embracing -- not fearing -- Grid technologies.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris comments on some of this week's feature articles, including Robert Cohen's piece on "virtual products," and points to some other articles of interest. He also presents a recent discussion with AMD's Margaret Lewis about the increasingly important role of processors in Grid and virtualized data centers.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris takes a look at the hosted services market, citing discussions with a hosting provider, as well as 3Tera, whose AppLogic software enables providers to create transactional grids and implement utility models for their customers.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris introduces this week's issue and gives his thoughts on being just one week out from GridWorld, which this year serves as an unofficial launch for "conference season."
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris discusses this week's article on application virtualization and addresses the belief that most Grid vendors are ignoring datacenter needs -- including application virtualization -- in order to focus on the scientific and R&D communities.

GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris discusses this week's feature articles, and comments on the credibility that having a pharmaceutical company lined up as a customer gives the Media Grid. He also touches upon Ian Foster's article and gives the URL for last week's special coverage of LinuxWorld by GRIDtoday and HPCwire.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris offers some highlights from this week's issue and discusses the openness of Digipede CEO John Powers. While he probably won't replace former Sun Microsystems CEO Scott McNealy as IT's walking soundbite, Powers is not afraid to say what's on his mind.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris takes a look at this week's issue and offers his comments on a few key articles, including the collaboration between Sun Microsystems and the Media Grid, and the impressive lineup of keynote speakers for the upcoming GridWorld conference.
This week's issue features a handful of articles on topics about which editor Derrick Harris has opined in recent months. From last week's thoughts on the proliferation of distributed computing projects to April's comments on Sun Grid, it seems we've been here before. However, even though he already shared some opinions, Harris does manage a few more words about Sun Grid, and utility computing in general.
In addition to providing a brief summary of this week's issue, GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris discusses the notion that Grid computing is not seen by businesses as the savior of ineffiency and cost-savings, but more so as a business advantage that allows them to "achieve something that's otherwise impossible."
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris clarifies somewhat last week's comments about Europe's lead in Grid usage, and introduces this week's issue, which features two commentaries by authors with different views as to why Europe seems to have an edge in Grid computing.
The answer to that question, of course, is that they all make an appearance in this week's issue. This week's exclusive features include a Q&A with representatives from HP about the EMEA region, and an article from HPCwire about a cluster-based grid that will leave others envious. Also discussed is a UK contest where students and young professionals can win an XBox 360 (among other prizes) for thinking of innovative uses for Grid technology.
In this new weekly feature, GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris will give readers a glimpse into this week's issue and some of its more interesting articles. Commentary and insight about Grid computing, in general, will also be included. This week, for example, Harris describes his small-scale, but successful, experience with the Sun Grid.
