ClusterMonkey.net: Everyday millions of people click on hyperlinks without knowing the source of the information they are about to view. Insulated from the physical location of the data, the user just clicks and the protocols do the rest. The Globus ToolkitŪ is designed to the same kind of thing only instead of linking users to data, Globus will link users to computational resources. Just as you do not know (or care) where your electricity was generated, so it may be with your computing cycles.
Grid computing holds great promise for the HPC cluster community. It is not intended to replace clusters nor will it turn every corporate LAN into a top500 cluster. Indeed, clusters may very well become the powerplants of the computational Grid.
