Subject: [OMPI users] Theoretical Differences: Cluster Computing, Distributed Computing, Grid Computing

Hi all!

I am a bit hazy about the differences between Distributed Computing
and Cluster Computing.

This document here
http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/grid/library/gr-heritage/ is a nice
read on Grid Computing and it also has few lines about important
differences from Cluster Computing.

Hints will be duly appreciated!

Thanks,
Amit
