Abstract – In grid computing, the total work load is distributed among many computers which are linked together through some kind of local or global network topology. There is no restriction of work it could be of any type like mathematical calculations or processor performing different tasks. Also grid computing do not bounds the computers linked together and they could be used also as in normal conditions they are being used A supercomputer could be created by linking different computers through grid computing. This research paper presents a comprehensive survey to grid computing technology and clarifies its different aspects in the domain of high speed huge data volume based computing. The research paper also investigates emerging trends in the modern grid computing technology. Grid computing is one the stat of the art technologies being used for high speed computing.

One can’t say about the start of basics of grid computing. There are different thoughts about the beginning of grid computing. It could be more right to say that the keyword Grid computing came into being by the start of 1990 decade due to the work of two people Carl Kesselmen’s and Ian Foster’s. They gave the main theme of grid computing. The Grid computing gained real fame in 2007. Electricity is an example of a kind of tool for which grid computing was been developed. The software can be used to connect various databases into networking which is the present form of grid computing. Well one could say that some years ago the effort was made to establish a process that would allow the computers to share in the situation. That made the grid computing to come into world. In 1990’s European countries and USA gave aid for the development of grid computing.

I. INTRODUCTION TO GRID COMPUTING Nearly all the technologies being used today is changing swiftly as the use of Internet is increasing all over the world the networks also behave similarly as the tools used are losing their cost day-by-day. To come about and to have great command on those changes surely new technologies having greater flexibility are required. But for the gain of those new technologies there is a lot of work to do because there are some features like cost, reusability, speed and quality that have great impact on them. So the ideas like super computer, which is made by connecting several computers through a computer bus having fast speed, are gaining fame in which several machines work together by linking through a network for a common task. This mechanism is known as Grid computing and is expected to play an important role in the field of computing in future. A. Grid Computing Networks Grid computing instead of relaying on high performance focuses on sharing networks. The complexity of grid computing is more then normal distributed computing. Normal distributed computing has an environment in which machines are distributed and managed individually and separately. Those machines rely on their own resources like own processing and memory. While the grid computing tries to make use of its linked machines work for same task. Grid computing creates a pond of computing resources. B. Origin Of Grid Computing
