Grid Computing Info Centre (GRID Infoware)

I discovered the following website via a citation in an engineering student’s PhD thesis.  (Still working on my interminable project collating citations in engineering masters’ and PhD theses.)  The site is called the Grid Computing Info Center (or GRID Infoware) site.  The URL is http://www.gridcomputing.com The site is run by Dr. Rajkumar Buyya, a professor of computer science and software engineering at the University of Melbourne.  This site collects and makes available information and links related to grid computing, the use of networks of distributed computers to run large-scale computing programs that can be used to solve very complex problems.  There is some explanatory information here (check out the FAQ’s if you are wondering what grid computing means.), as well as links to grid projects, conferences, software and hardware sites, and a few articles.  This looks like a good site for getting a sense of what is happening in this area of computer science.
