On the other hand, the public nature of this model can raise serious security issues and can be prone to malicious attacks. 1). 1 SETI@home architecture, a typical Internet computing application that harnesses idle desktop power. 2 Peer-to-Peer (P2P) The infamous Napster software is the prime example of a P2P distributed model. In a P2P network, computers are called peers and take advantage of resources: storage, cycles, content, and human presence available in the Internet. Peers access decentralized resources in an environment of unstable connectivity and unpredictable IP addresses.

All these accomplishments have been made possible through the advances in computing and simulation science. But we have only begun to grasp the future of what is to come in the next century! 2 THE GRID IN A NUTSHELL As industry has become involved in distributed systems, the term grid has become a marketing slogan—so much so that any type of distributed filesystem can be called a storage grid, or a scheduler deployed in a cluster can be called a cluster grid, or if a user connects through a file-sharing application, he could be using a digital media distribution grid.

More powerful computers provided broader support for energy research in applications such as fusion plasma modeling and atmosphere and emissions modeling. In the 1970s, computers were first linked by networks, thus giving birth to the idea of harnessing idle computing power. Scientists at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) created the first Ethernet network beginning the first experiments on distributed computing. Scientists John F. Shoch and Jon Hupp developed the famous Internet worm, which was designed to move around using idle CPU cycles for beneficial purposes.
