Cloud-Based Grid Computing

Cloud-based grid computing involves using computers in a public cloud service, or a hybrid of public cloud and internally owned computers, to collectively accomplish large tasks, such as derivative risk analysis, candidate drug screening and complex simulations. We do not include grids that use private cloud or traditional in-house servers only, which we instead cover as “grid computing not using public cloud computers.”
