Grid computing continues to hold promise for the high-availability of a wide range of computational systems and techniques. It is suggested that Grids will attain greater acceptance by a larger audience of commercial end-users if binding Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are provided. The authors discuss Grid commoditization, and in particular the use of Grid technologies for certain kinds of financial risk analysis where both data and computation requirements can be substantial. The nature of such analysis, and the need for it to run to completion, suggests the need to guarantee availability and capability in the underlying Grid infrastructure.
