About Cloud-Grid computing and virtualization for SOA

Cloud computing (Sometimes called distributed computing or grid computing) refers to applying the resources of many computers in a network to a single problem at the same time. The two major classes of cloud computing architectures are private (in which the computers utilized are all on the private network) and public (which utilizes a large number of computers connected via the Internet). Find the latest information on cloud-grid computing and cloud architecture for SOA with the resources in this topic section, including tips, news and expert advice.
