The grid is a next generation technology that will change the way people thought about internet. This is a technology that is about to come and will run internet at a 10,000 times faster speed than the fastest internet connection today. It will build a mass of computer networks that would increase the global internet speed dramatically. For those who have a little idea on the internet can refer the alternate definition of The Grid, which is downloading a complete film will take a FEW SECONDS using The Grid internet technology, and that is true.
The Grid technology is now not globally available for the commercial sectors, but will be available soon and be the part of the networks to be used in telecommunication services, all network services and business services.
The Grid technology was actually a project undertaken to build a high speed computing network in CERN for transmitting huge amounts of data generated by the analysis of Particle Physics. Particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider used for the analysis of foreign particles in the universe used the technology of Grid to transits its data.
After its production till then, the grid will become a super high speed data transmitter medium where computer networks can use to capture data from the Large Hadron Collider at the Cern.
The current internet network is made of many cables, some routine hardware and equipments linked together. Most of these cables are telephone networks and thus they all lack the capacity for a high speed data transmission.
The Grid is completely a different technology from the regular internet connections. It is made of dedicated fiber optical cables and modern routing hardware’s, there is no singlet outdated hardware’s used that would cause slower data transmission.
Most predict that when The Grid technology will hit the market and into the everyday business and home purpose users, their desktop computers will become obsolete. As everybody will rely on the high speed transmission technology, they would more rely on online applications. As the internet speed will be 1000 times faster than any one can imagine, people will tend to store their data online and access to them like they are using their own hard disks. Due to this, Google and many other online applications will change phase, so will the Microsoft manufacturers and other OS providers.
With the Grid technology coming in existence, numerous new online applications will appear. One can have holographic video conferencing; online gaming will speed up like never before where millions of players can play their games at a time, social networking could be made even broader than current level and much more.
The days seem not too far when the world will dramatically change in their life styles. Technologies has its no end, the successful production of Grid will clearly prove that.
