INITRODUCTION

Enterprise grid computing is an emerging information technology (IT) architecture that delivers more flexible, resilient and lower cost enterprise information systems. With grid computing, groups of independent, modular hardware and software components can be pooled and provisioned on demand to meet the changing needs of businesses. The accelerating adoption of grid technology is in direct response to the challenges that IT organizations face with today’s rapidly changing and unpredictable business cycles. IT departments are under pressure to increase operational agility, to establish and meet IT service levels and to control costs. Using enterprise grid computing technology IT departments can adapt to rapid changes in the business environment while meeting higher service levels. Enterprise grid computing has also revolutionized IT economics by both extending the life of existing systems and exploiting rapid advances in processing power, storage capacity, network bandwidth, as well as energy and space efficiency. Oracle first introduced grid computing capabilities in the Oracle Database and Application Server in the year 2003 and continues to lead the software industry in its commitment to grid computing products and practices. With the current releases of the Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware products, Oracle has introduced a second generation of grid computing capabilities that build on Oracle’s strong foundation of scalable, fault-tolerant database and middleware clusters, virtualized computing and storage resources, and highly automated endto-end application and business process management.
