Grids Mean Business 3: Grid Markets and Service Delivery
Ian Osborne, Project Director, Grid Computing Now!
This session will examine business scenarios based on the provision and sourcing of services in a grid market. Utility computing provides this facility at the level of computing resources, whether these are CPU time or storage. Software as a service provides higher-level, application-specific, services. A grid market can exist within a company, where different departments and projects buy time from a central infrastructure. Or it may exist between companies, providing new business opportunities.
Case studies from a range of companies will show the applicability of this paradigm across business sectors.
