Zusammenfassung

In den letzten Jahren erregte Grid-Computing eine enorme Aufmerksamkeit in der Industrie, da dieses Möglichkeiten für neue On-Demand-Services bietet. In diesem Beitrag zeigen wir den aktuellen Trend der Industrie auf, Grid-Dienste zu nutzen, die von externen Dienstleistern auf einer On-Demand- und Pay-per-Use-Basis angeboten werden und somit zu einer schnelleren Reaktion der IT auf sich verändernde Geschäftsanforderungen führt. Die Autoren stellen die entstehende Expansion des Grid-Computing in Unternehmen dar und diskutieren zentrale Herausforderungen, die noch einer Lösung bedürfen, um die Verbreitung der Grid-Technologie im betrieblichen Umfeld weiter zu fördern.

Services Grids in Industry – On-Demand Provisioning and Allocation of Grid-based Business Services

Abstract

Over the last few years Grid computing has attracted considerable attention from the industry, because it offers opportunities for new on-demand business services for enterprises. In this article, we depict the current trend of enterprises to source Grid services offered by third-party utility providers on a use-on-demand, pay-per-use basis, thus leading to faster IT response to changing business needs. We outline the emerging expansion of Grid computing in industry and discuss the significant challenges still needing to be solved to further promote the adoption of Grid technology in the business domain.
