grid computing


Hi,

It is absolutely right that if I google "grid computing", I can find a wealth of information. However, since I know this forum is visited by lots of geeks, I want to know what their opinion is about starting to study about grid computation and the probable sources they might have found useful for beginners.

My goal is to put a time and learn about cloud computing, parallel programming, apache hadoop, demo hadoop and ...

My intention is to get familiar with such computation to a level that I can tell my school professor that I can handle moderate jobs.

Any comment is very welcome.

These components are all coming from different perspectives, and the level of knowledge required depends on your role, what is it that you actually want to do?

To simplify, we are developing a scientific software for simulations. We should run the jobs on multi-processors using mpi. We run the jobs on servers with four processors AMD 6174, or two processors Xeon 5570.

I'd say concentrate on the parallel programming to start, there's a book by Wiley called Tools and Environments for Parallel and Distributed Computing, it's getting on a bit but still useful so you could try Book Depository or Amazon.
