Penulis: Dr. Heru Susanto S.Kom, M.Sc, Leu Fang-Yie, PhD; Chin Kang Chen, PhD
Over the years, grid computing has become a dynamic technology trend along with cloud computing, distributed computing, object-oriented programming which has set up high performance computing in several scientific environments. scientific high performance computing method was highly involved in every aircrafts and weapons design. They were also used for code breaking. During World War II, Enigma’s code were cracked by machines in UK. Later on, Seymour Roger Cray, an American electrical engineer designed and created the fastest supercomputer named CDC6600 at Control Data Corporation (CDC). The point of having HPC is to allow individual nodes to work together in order to solve a problem larger than any one computer can easily solve. These nodes will need to be able to communicate and pass information from one to another interchangeably via variety of computer network. As long as the nodes are connected to the same network, any tasks can still be solved even when all the computers are not located in the same place. HPC systems are normally used by the government sectors such as military forces and meteorological departments. Meteorological departments would use HPC to undertake weather forecasting, climate modelling as well as earthquake simulations and any other matters that are related to the universe. Whereas for military forces, HPC would allows them to do nuclear research or even weapon development, as a preparation for defending the country. This study to emphasize the relationship between high performance and grid computing, to provide a better insight deeper and clearer understandings with the different characteristics of both from a various angle, and further, to demonstrate how grid computing actually helps to solve different complexity levels of tasks and how is it being utilised in our society. This study also discuss about the future of grid computing for high speed networking by investigate the current state of grid computing technology and examine the future undertaking of grid computing high speed networking.
