The computing environment that makes up a grid can be dispersed across more than just geography—it can cover multiple operating systems, as well. The heterogenous nature of many grids increases both the performance and the robustness of the grid. Now, it must be noted that heterogeneity is an architectural possibility of a computing grid, not a requirement. Plenty of grids make use of only a single type of computer. Whether the grid is made up of a single type of computer or a veritable “United Nations” of machines, the software that brings it together is a suite of resource controllers, data assemblers, client-computer applications, and a special class of software called “middleware” that glues it all together.

This is in some ways a much more difficult question, because the answer can vary so widely from one cloud computing application to another. Do you need a word processing application to run on a workstation that is underpowered for today’s most popular personal productivity software?
