For business computing demands, the Oracle Grid design combines a large number of servers, storage, and networks into a flexible, on-demand computing resource. The grid computing architecture constantly assesses resource demand and changes supply accordingly.
We can, for example, operate many applications on a grid of linked database servers. The Database Administrator can automatically supply extra servers to that application to accommodate the increased demand when reports are due at the end of the month.
Grid computing makes it feasible for programmes to share resources across several servers thanks to intelligent workload management. Data processing capacity and resources within a location may be flexibly supplied, and data processing capacity can be added or withdrawn on demand. Web services enable the creation of new business processes by easily integrating apps.
