 Grid computing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Grids provide the ability to perform computations on large data sets, by breaking them down into many smaller ones, or provide the ability to perform many more computations at once than would be possible on a single computer, by modeling a parallel division of labour between processes.
Grid computing offers a model for solving massive computational problems by making use of the unused resources (CPU cycles and/or disk storage) of large numbers of disparate computers, often desktop computers, treated as a virtual cluster embedded in a distributed telecommunications infrastructure.
Grid computing is also attractive to large commercial enterprises with complex computation problems who aim to fully exploit their internal computing power: internal Grids.

The grid plan is a type of city plan in which streets run at right angles to each other, forming a grid.
These are extremely common in towns of the 18th century or later, which have often been created as part of a city plan, such as the New Town in Edinburgh, or the many towns and cities in Australia, the United States or Canada.
Often, some of the streets in a grid are numbered (First, Second, etc.), lettered, or arranged in alphabetical order.
