CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Grid Database Design investigates the origin, background, and components of
this new computing model. This book presents new concepts and analyzes
pre-existing ideas in the context of Grid, educating organizations as to how
Grid can increase their computing power and strengthen their operations.
Divided into three sections, the volume begins by laying the groundwork in the
field, defining the concepts that led to the model's emergence. The second
section explains what is entailed in building a Grid, focusing on security,
hardware, and the forces driving growth. The final section explores details of
databases in a Grid environment, illustrating how the Grid environment will
shape database evolution.
Grid Database Design reveals what will be coming in the near future, allowing
database and systems administrators, programmers, and executives to get beyond
the rumblings about this up-and-coming model and learn what Grid can offer to
benefit their organizations.
