Simon will discuss some of the key components of a compute grid infrastructure and highlight some of the key challenges organisations have to meet as their compute grids expand. Simon will also discuss one organisation within the spread betting industry who has recently started using grid technology. Finally Simon will describe how compute grids within the capital markets are beginning to resemble private clouds, and how the underlying infrastructure needs to change to enable these organisation to support a much wider range of applications running on the grid.
