In Grid Computing: A Vertical Market Perspective 2005-2010, Insight Research explores the implications of grid computing on vertical markets and industries, with a special emphasis on the telecommunications industry. With its unique vantage point astride the telecom and IT industries, Insight analyzes both the risks and opportunities for service providers to implement grids for cost-cutting measures, and to capitalize on grids as revenue-generating sources.

Grid computing provides consistent, inexpensive access to computational resources (supercomputers, storage systems, data sources, instruments, and people) regardless of their physical location or access point. As such, The Grid provides a single, unified resource for solving large-scale compute and data intensive computing applications.

In Grid Computing: A Vertical Market Perspective, Insight examines grid technology, the players, and its industry-specific applications, offering segmented forecasts through 2010. In addition to an aggregated spending estimate for grid computing, this report forecasts spending in 14 vertical industries and four geographic regions. Revenue is also segmented by the sharing organization, and by the type of resource shared.

    Report Excerpt

    In the two years since INSIGHT’s last examination of the topic, grid computing has moved out of the laboratory and into mainstream commercial applications. No longer the exclusive tool of researchers seeking to harness enough compute power for massive computational challenges such as weather modeling or weapons test simulations, today grids are being deployed in more traditional commercial computing applications. For example, commercial computing stalwarts IBM, Intel, Hewlett-Packard (HP), and Sun recently announced they were forming the Globus Consortium to drive the technology into the mainstream for applications such as financial analysis, oil exploration, and pharmaceutical testing. And within the technical community, new standards being developed called the Web Services Resource Framework (WSRF) will foster convergence of the Web service and grid computing communities, which in the years ahead is likely to have a major impact on quality and diversity of Web services.

    Grid computing is a form of distributed system wherein computing resources are shared across networks. Just as Web standards and technologies enabled universal, transparent access to documents, grid promises do so for computing resources. Grid enables the selection, aggregation, and sharing of information resources resident in multiple administrative domains and across geographic areas. These information resources are shared based upon their availability, capability, and cost, as well as the user’s quality of service (QoS) requirements. Grid computing is meant to:

    · reduce total cost of ownership (TCO);

    · aggregate and improve efficiency of computing, data, and storage resources; and

    · enable the creation of virtual organizations for applications and data sharing.

    IT analysts are calling grid computing one of the outstanding emerging technologies that will likely form the foundation of a fourth wave in IT. This nascent fourth stage of IT encompasses technologies and concepts such as grid computing, computing on demand, utility computing, organic information technology (IT), virtualization, adaptive computing, and Internet computing.

    This new paradigm will enable heterogeneous computing resources of all kinds to be shared over networks and reallocated dynamically across applications, processes, and users to a greater degree than ever before possible. It will give office and even home machines the ability to reach into cyberspace, find resources wherever they may be, and assemble them on the fly into whatever applications are needed. In this respect, grid computing is a key foundational technology of this new paradigm.

    Today there are nearly 100 substantial academic/research grids in development or production around the world, but the real action is in commercialization of grid technologies for the enterprise—and an area most pregnant with possibilities is the development of grid-enabled Web services.

    In January 2004, a number of Web and grid computing specialists announced a set of draft specifications intended to quicken the pace of commercial Web services developments. The new WSRF is playing a role in converging the Web service and grid computing communities. To a certain extent, grids and Web services act alike: in both environments one system will make a request and another system will respond. Grids and Web services are different in respect to “state” memory. Web services are “stateless”—they have no memory of what a programmer has
