ENTERPRISE GRID COMPUTING VS. DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING

To refresh, Distributed Computing is any computing that involves multiple computers remote from each other that each have a role in a computation problem or information processing.

Now that we discussed grid computing and the history of Distributed Computing in detail we can see understand the difference vs. Enterprise Grid Computing being much more dynamic and an evolution to Distributed Computing. Enterprise Grid Computing utilizes an enterprise's entire computational resources — servers, networks, storage, and information — acting together to create one or more large pools of computing resources. A grid can be dynamically provisioned on demand to various enterprise applications and users, allowing enterprises to dynamically align their IT resources to their business needs.
