GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris takes a look at the recently announced collaboration by Cassatt and BearingPoint around utility computing, breaking down how their definition clashes with preconceived notions of utility computing, as well as how Cassatt's software fits into the new virtualized, on-demand world of grid computing.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris takes a look at the big news from last week, including a newly announced partnership between GemStone Systems and Rogue Wave software, which Harris equates to NFL teams currently spending their off-seasons adding depth where needed. On the other end of the spectrum, while these two relatively small companies are working together for mutual benefit, IT giant IBM announced yet another market-specific grid offering.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris highlights the big news from this week's issue and offers his thoughts on Paul Strong's assertion that grid computing -- once thought only to be useful for HPC applications -- is now the foundation for the distributed platforms and services that make Web 2.0 possible.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris gives his thoughts on this week's issue, which include some insight into how Platform's (and customer Lehman Brothers') vision for grid mirrors what we've been seeing over the past year. Harris also shares Platform CEO Songnian Zhou's thoughts on the upcoming cluster server, which he believes could revolutionize enterprise computing.
Grid computing, virtualization, volunteer computing and utility computing: GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris touches on all of these as he takes you through this week's issue and comments on the distributed computing world, from Cambridge University to PlayStation 3.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris examines this week's issue, which he believes includes solid representation from many of the aspects that make up grid computing, including two feature articles on the oft-ignored microprocessor and an emerging commercial application (by way of insight on how Oracle will play in the extreme transaction processing market), respectively.
GRIDtoday Editor Derrick Harris comments on his time at last week's Java Symposium, where grid was quite popular, and from where Oracle's acquisition of Tangosol was announced. Harris also highlights this week's issue and shares some thoughts on Folding@Home's quest for a petaflop and beyond thanks to Sony's PlayStation 3.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris discusses this week's issue, including this thoughts on the recent updates to the Sun Grid and Network.com. Harris also applauds Jeff Mathers and Johnson & Johnson for being so forthcoming in sharing their grid experiences, and he calls on other users to do their part in the grid ecosystem by sharing their stories.
GRIDtoday editor Derrick Harris takes a look at what the future holds, from where enterprise Grid computing is headed (application platforms) to what's on tap for the World Community Grid (climate change) all the way down to what to expect in upcoming issues (exclusive interviews).

Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.
