Grids, Clouds and Physics

Remember the Canonical Commutation Relation (Commutator) from Physics courses?

Let's implement it on our two favorite terms:

[Grids, Clouds] = Grids*Clouds-Clouds*Grids ≠ 0

This means that we can build Grids of Clouds and we can build Clouds of Grids and the final outcome will be different….
…So Distributed Computing exhibits Quantum and not Classical behavior :)

In the near future we will see Clouds connected into a Grid and Grids that are implemented on top of a Cloud.

The race for new buzz words - GaaS

Following OnLive at GDC and others I would like to suggest the term GaaS to stand for Game as a Service. GaaS represents streaming games services that are delivered to end-users (with thin clients) by a Cloud Computing infastructure. Charging can be done according to a Pay-Per-Use model.
