Morouj1 , Zahoor2 Abstract—It is a great idea to make many normal computers together to get a super computer, and this computer can do a lot of things. This is the concept of cloud computing. Cloud computing is an emerging model of business computing. And it is becoming a development trend. This article compares cloud computing and grid computing. Internet has connected all the computers in the world. Grid computing has been put forward under this background. Its core concept is to complete computing based on compute grid, in it every computer will devote power. In recent years a new concept cloud

Computing grids are conceptually not unlike electrical grids. In an electrical grid, wall outlets allow us to link to an infrastructure of resources that generate, distribute. And bill for electricity. When you connect to the electrical grid, you don’t need to know where the power plant is or how the current gets to you. IT resources across a network, allowing them to function as a virtual whole. The goal of a grid computing, like that of the electrical grid, is to provide users with access to the resources they need, when they need them[4]. Many grids are appearing in the sciences, in fields such as chemistry, physics, and genetics, and cryptologists and mathematicians have also begun working with grid computing. Grid technology has the potential to significantly impact other areas of study with heavy computational requirements, such as urban planning. Another important area for the technology is animation, which requires massive amounts of disciplines. Grid provides a series of distributed computing resource through LAN or WAN. To the terminal user of application, as is he is using a super virtual computer. This idea will realize safe and coordinate resource sharing among person, organization and resources, and will create virtual and dynamic organization. Grid computing is a method of distributed computing. It includes location and organization, software and hardware to provide unlimited power. Its name is to make anyone…show more content…
Grid computing may or may not be in the cloud depending on what type of users who are using it. If the users are systems administrators and integrators, What they care is how things are maintained n the cloud. They upgrade, install, and virtualize servers and applications. If the users are consumers, they do not care how things are run in the system. Grid computing requires the use of software that can divide and farm out pieces of a program as one large system image to a great number of computers. One concern about grid is that if one piece of the software on a node fails, other pieces of the software on other nodes may fail. This is alleviated if that component has a failover component on another node, but problems can still arise if components rely on other pieces of software to accomplish one or more grid computing tasks. Large system images and associated hardware to operate and maintain them can contribute to large capital and operating
