Grid Computing is a term driven by using a worldwide network of computing servers jointly for a big data problem. Each of these computing Servers is named as a Grid resource that includes also large storage capabilities. The term ‘grid’ in this context refers to the analogy to the electronic power grid. In this particular grid energy is transparent with respect to the original power source. It is assessible through a uniform interface. The power plants of the ‘computing Grid’ isa wide variety of compute & data Grid resources. Contracts with provider (accounting) exist and world-wide standards are rather fixed and evolved. The key differences to the ‘power Grid’ are as follows. Most notably, the computing Grid has a wider spectrum of performance and a high variety of services & heterogeneity. The standardization activities as within the Open Grid Forum (OGF) are still in progress. Also, the access is governed by more complicated issuessuch as security, performance, socio-economic factors,multi-ownerships, funding and political issues.
