The data Grids appear mostly in the scientific community but it is also necessary to have the data Grid in the industry sector. Applying the way of scientific data Grid to the industry brings many disadvantages such as expensive investment, not efficient usage and unfair sharing. This paper presents an alternative approach, an economic aware data Grid. The incentives of having an economic aware data Grid, the business model and the working mechanism are analyzed in depth.
