Difference between Cloud Computing and Grid Computing
Cloud computing uses a client-server architecture to deliver computing resources such as servers, storage, databases, and software over the cloud (Internet) with pay-as-you-go pricing.
Cloud computing becomes a very popular option for organizations by providing various advantages, including cost-saving, increased productivity, efficiency, performance, data back-ups, disaster recovery, and security.
Grid computing is also called as "distributed computing." It links multiple computing resources (PC's, workstations, servers, and storage elements) together and provides a mechanism to access them.
The main advantages of grid computing are that it increases user productivity by providing transparent access to resources, and work can be completed more quickly.
Let's understand the difference between cloud computing and grid computing.
