P2P and Grid Computing
Time 10/04/01 01:05PM-01:30PM
Peer to Peer and Grid computing are two collaborative computing technologies with different origins but many common applications and concerns. I review the origins, current state, and likely future directions of the two technologies, and discuss ways in which the university community can integrate them into their infrastructure to better support research and education. I illustrate my discussion by reference to major academic research and development projects with a significant Grid focus, such as GriPhyN (www.griphyn.org) and NEESgrid (www.neesgrid.org).
