    • 10. Grid Apps – Back-end Jobs
      Users
      Front-end web app
      “Complete” web site
      Simple submit/retrieve site
      Back-end grid
      Processes jobs “submitted”via web site
      Results “retrieved” via web site
      Job queue invisible to end user
      Grow/shrink workers tomaintain SLA
      Typical example:
      Multi-media processing/transcoding
      Web tier
      Grid tier
