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.
