About the Book
The Grid Vision describes the vision behind "The Grid". The grid vision consists of a set of ideas and technologies which form an alternative to "The Web".
The Grid is designed for a wider set of use cases than the web. Examples of potential use cases are digital radio, file backup, remote procedure calls, video streaming, message queue subscriptions,Internet of things etc. In short, the grid vision is targeting the Internet of Everything (IoE).
We know a lot more about designing high performance, scalable, robust distributed systems today than we did 30+ years ago when the web technologies were first conceived. We do our best to take as much of this knowledge into consideration in the design of the core grid technologies.
