HP sees Grid technologies providing a general and powerful way to virtualize resources - that is, to abstract resources connected to a network from their physical instantiations - and present these resources to clients as services.
HP is driving the technologies, standards and solutions that make grid computing a powerful strategy for the enterprise today. Grid solutions virtualize your heterogeneous resources – servers storage, network devices, data stores, and application services – so you can collaborate efficiently across organizational boundaries and even outside the corporation. Grid computing is a key enabler of the Converged Infrastructure, where IT is an agile service aligned with business to help you capitalize on change.
