Tradeoffs involved in using Network Computers
Over time, organizations have moved through different types of computers and networks. Each time a company changes, they do so because they believe they have the best system for their own needs. In today’s economy, this decision often comes down to using a networked computer or grid computing.
Discuss the various tradeoffs involved in using network computers (NCs) or grid computing as an organization standard. Describe how using your own computer at home or at work would be different if your computer was on a grid. Also, research distributed computing projects and include a link in your response to a public distributed computing research project.
