Grid Computing

Grid computing turns computing into a utility, where users don't care where the data resides, or what computer processes a request. Users request information or computation and have it delivered - as much as they want, whenever they want. For the DBA, the grid is about resource allocation, information sharing, and high availability. Oracle Database with Real Application Clusters and Oracle Clusterware provide the infrastructure for your database grid. Automatic Storage Management provides the infrastructure for a storage grid. Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control provides you with holistic management of your grid.
