Grid computing is an emerging technology which is finding its importance in handling large volumes of data. It is used to share and coordinate the distributed processing resources to achieve supercomputing capability. A high end computing facility and mass data storage is needed for any image processing applications which are not feasible with the help of a single computing resource. Grid computing tries to make all the resources shared, including computing resources, storage resources, communicating resources, software resources, Information resources, knowledge resources, etc. At present, grid technology is implemented in many famous Grid projects such as Information Power Grid (IPG) of NASA-USA, Euro Grid, Data Grid, etc.
