Grid computing comprises of distributed computer systems which are geographically dispersed to share the combination of resources in a heterogeneous environment. The ever varying and increasing demands of the computational resources have generated the need for solutions that are more flexible. With the use of a high tech computer that has more and faster processors and auxiliary storage space or more RAM (Random Access Memory), it is not well enough for a solution as the system usage patterns differ. A grid based distributed system can solve this problem by allowing multiple independent jobs to run over a network with heterogeneous computing nodes.
