Harness the power of your distributed IT resources

Imagine linking your IT components into one virtual resource that can be shared across your global enterprise and provided as a service, on demand. That’s the promise of grid computing.

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 Adaptive Infrastructure, where IT is an agile service aligned with business to help you capitalize on change.
