Whether you call it grid hosting, utility hosting, or some combination of the two, it's pretty clear that the concept offers some real benefits to users who aren't too interested in dealing with the cost and complexity of managing their resources. GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris addresses whether grid hosting providers will be able to overcome public misconceptions and stiff competition in their mission to win over the mainstream enterprise.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris offers his thoughts on the rapidly heating up world of on-demand computing. From the recent news surrounding virtualization vendors VMware and XenSource to more and more companies applying on-demand and grid technologies solutions to their respective problems, the market is in the midst of some serious action.

If GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris took one thing away from last week's Next Generation Data Center conference, it is that while a lot of cutting-edge distributed solutions (e.g., grid computing, virtualization, utility computing, etc.) are ready for primetime, users aren't always knocking down the doors to get at them, preferring, instead, to take things one step at a time.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris discusses this week's Next Generation Data Center conference (which is co-located with the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo), focusing on the apparent lack of representation from the greater grid/distributed community -- even in a conference track dedicated to virtualization, grid and HPC.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris shares his thoughts on this week's issue, which features yet another piece espousing the importance of grid computing in the financial services market. And some people still question whether grid technologies are for real ...
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris offers his thoughts on the much-anticipated release of Oracle Database 11g, which the company has claimed is aimed at "growing the grid." However, grid-specific improvements are somewhat difficult to notice, and one Oracle executive even acknowledges a lack of grid support in the new solution.
In this week's column, GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris looks back on some of the most popular features from the first half of 2007, which combine to paint a picture of where the grid world has been and where it appears to be heading.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris offers his insights into the latest grid-related news, which includes two ISVs expanding their partnerships with Sun Microsystems around grid hosting, as well as DataSynapse targeting "mega-grid" management with its new GridServer 5.0 solution.

The ever-growing complexity of scientific and engineering problems continues to pose new computational challenges. Thus, we present a novel federation model that enables end-users with the ability to aggregate heterogeneous resource scale problems. The feasibility of this federation model has been proven, in the context of the UberCloud HPC Experiment, by gathering the most comprehensive information to date on the effects of pillars on microfluid channel flow.
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
