9780127425030: Grid Computing: The Savvy Manager's Guide (The Savvy Manager's Guides)

A decade ago, the corporate world viewed grid computing as a curiosity. Today, it views it as an opportunity-a chance to reduce costs, improve performance, fund new projects, and take advantage of under-utilized capacity.

Grid Computing: The Savvy Manager's Guide examines the technology from a rigorous business perspective, equipping you with the practical knowledge you need to assess your options and determine what grid computing approach is right for your enterprise. This book is heavy on real-world experience, distilling from a rich assortment of case studies the best practices currently at work in a variety of industries. Always attentive to grid computing's many competitive advantages, it is also realistic about the challenges of selling the idea to staff and making it a part of your company's culture. Grid Computing has an Online Companion at www.savvygrid.com with contents, details, community forum, and latest updates for the material.

I have been involved in Grid for several years, and yes, all the different aspects discussed in the book have come up sometime, somewhere." -- Sven Graupner, Technical Specialist, Hewlett Packard Laboratories "The authors of this book are particularly well qualified to make the case for Grid computing to the business IT manager. Both have been intimately involved in developing and deploying Grid technology and applications for many years." -- Ian Foster, Head of Distributed Systems Lab, Argonne National Laboratory and Carl Kesselman, Director of Center for Grid Technologies, University of Southern California "Offers a practical examination of where the entire field of distributed computing is headed."
