The storage resource not only must be virtualized, but it also must be intelligent and self-managing in order to continually provide optimal data services to the computing
tasks that rely on it.
The graduate MIS computing
courses can be grouped into the following three broad categories: (1) general computing
courses, (2) advanced computing
courses, and (3) special projects.
In addition, the cyclical nature of technology that involved mainframes in the 1970s, minis in the 1980s and distributed computing
in the 1990s, led the way to utility computing
, said Gates Ouimette, marketing manager for The InterUnity Group, a company that helps businesses improve their business performance through the optimization of IT spending.
Sun is not the only hardware or software supplier offering grid computing
Indeed, utility computing
aims to strengthen the delivery of business process and management functions integral to the way the organization works.
As design complexity and data set sizes grow exponentially, the need for computing
resources also increases dramatically," said Mark Canepa, Sun's Vice President of Internet, Desktop and Server Group.
Once the esoteric tool of PhD computer scientists, cluster computing
technology has matured to become an integral part of many organizations' production computing
This perspective, however, oversimplifies today's computing
