  • 1. Grid – Distributed Computing at Scale Mark Linesch - President, Open Grid Forum Hewlett Packard
  • 2. New world of distributed computing Old World New World Static Silo Physical Manual Application Dynamic Shared Virtual Automated Service
  • 3. A new world of opportunity and challenges
    • Providers: Deployment, management and change at scale
    Users: Communication, collaboration and commerce at scale Infrastructure Applications
  • 4. Industry is still “storming, forming, and norming” on the terms
    • 70% of respondents said there is a better term than ‘grid’ to describe their distributed computing architecture
    Source: 451 Group, January 2007 Grid Computing - The State of the Market
  • 5. … as the technology threads are brought together Grid & Virtualization Scale-out multi-core, blades, clusters … Process Automation SOA & SaaS Integrated platforms for distributed systems & services
  • 6. Funding the transition requires a focus on the economics … Maintenance & Operations 50% Innovation 35% Performance Enhancement 15% IT Shared Services Maintenance & Operations 71% Innovation Performance Enhancement 9% 20%
  • 7. … while balancing short and longer term aspects of the journey Transformation Optimization Services, processes, & measures People, program & change management Architecture & Governance Strategy Technology Platform Data Center Consolidation Data Center Automation Server Virtualization Power & Cooling Enterprise SOA IT as a Service Open Source
  • 8. … and maturing the technology platform over time Service Catalogs Process Automation Common Resource Model Services Architecture Technology platform Security Metering, reporting Application Virtualization Data Virtualization Infrastructure Virtualization Service Management
  • 9. Grid and related concepts are essential to maturing the technology platform Data in any format, at any location, accessed and integrated while masking complexity Business & IT processes automated and adjusted based on policy Applications/Services abstracted from the underlying IT infrastructure. Resources shared and aggregated to support dynamic workloads. Grid SOA Virtualization Automation
  • 10. Grids can be view from several perspectives Broad Grids as application- agnostic infrastructure Narrow Grids as application-specific deployments
  • 11. On the one hand ...Grid adoption begins application specific … Level Level 1 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5 Source: 451 Group, January 2007 Grid Computing - The State of the Market Multiple applications on linked grids, with more extensive resource sharing, looking at broad enterprise applications Trials/Proof of concept Single application run in single line-of-business Multiple applications on silo’d grids, operated by lines-of-business Multiple applications on basic linked grids, with limited resource sharing and centralized control
  • 12. On the other hand, Grids can be viewed more broadly …. “ In a broader sense, grids are the integrated platforms for all network-distributed applications or services, whether they are computationally or transactionally intensive.” Paul Strong, eBay
  • 13. Whether broad or narrow, Grids are about scaling IT Operate at scale Build at scale Change at scale Manage at scale
  • 14. Adoption is progressing in stages Scientific/ Technical Grids Commercial/ Enterprise Grids Early Deployments Momentum Building (Proven Solutions) Broad Adoption We are somewhere around here Pervasive Adoption “ breaking through non-standard barriers”
  • 15. Popular Grid usage patterns are emerging … Early Deployments Momentum Building (Proven Solutions) Broad Adoption HPC-oriented solutions for research, engineering, and LOB Shared & service-oriented infrastructures that span the data center (s) Multi-organizational collaborations and regional grid infrastructures “ Cloud” and emerging Utility Providers … Automotive, Aerospace design … Physics, Weather Forecasting … Research, Engineering … Enterprise Data Centers … Finance, Pharma, Energy …
