Grid – Distributed Computing at Scale

  1. 1. Grid – Distributed Computing at Scale Mark Linesch - President, Open Grid Forum Hewlett Packard
  2. 2. New world of distributed computing Old World New World Static Silo Physical Manual Application Dynamic Shared Virtual Automated Service
  3. 3. A new world of opportunity and challenges <ul><li>Providers: Deployment, management and change at scale </li></ul>Users: Communication, collaboration and commerce at scale Infrastructure Applications
  4. 4. Industry is still “storming, forming, and norming” on the terms <ul><li>70% of respondents said there is a better term than ‘grid’ to describe their distributed computing architecture </li></ul>Source: 451 Group, January 2007 Grid Computing - The State of the Market
  5. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 10. Grids can be view from several perspectives Broad Grids as application- agnostic infrastructure Narrow Grids as application-specific deployments
  11. 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. 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. 13. Whether broad or narrow, Grids are about scaling IT Operate at scale Build at scale Change at scale Manage at scale
  14. 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. 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 … <ul><li>Barriers </li></ul><ul><li>Social </li></ul><ul><li>Licensing </li></ul><ul><li>Standards </li></ul>
