IBM, Sun, Oracle, AT&T, and others are major players in this space. Grid computing cannot really exist without networks (the “grid”), since the user is requesting computing or storage resources that are located miles or continents away. ” One can think of grid computing as a middleware that shields the user from the raw technology itself. The network delivers the job requests anywhere in the world and returns the results, based on an established service level agreement. The advantages of grid computing are the fact that there can be a mix-and-match of different hardware in the network; the cost is lower because there is a better, statistically-averaged, utilization of the underlying resources; also, there is higher availability because if a processor were to fail, another processor is automatically switched in service.

This decision process (strategy) is external to the architecture itself; for example, a company (such as a system integrator) may want to deploy VoIP internally to gain experience with that technology to then sell that to prospective customers; again note that decision process (strategy) is external to the architecture itself. Then we would have the following: I(1,2,n + 1) = 1 I(1,3, n + 1) = 1 I(1,4, n + 1) = 1 I(2,3, n + 1) = 0 I(2,4, n + 1) = 1 I(3,4, n + 1) = 0 Then: D(1,2, n + 1) = encrypted files D(1,3, n + 1) = encrypted files D(1,4, n + 1) = compressed voice files D(2,4, n + 1) = compressed voice files Then: PI(1,2, n + 1) = TCP/IP with IPSec PI(1,3, n + 1) = TCP/IP with SSL PI(1,4, n + 1) = RTP/UDP PI(2,4, n + 1) = RTP/UDP So: FB(1,n) = {F(1,n) = corporate LAN at month n, I(1,2,n) = 1, I(1,3,n) = 1, I(1,4,n) = 1, D(1,2,n) = Encrypted files, D(1,3,n) = Encrypted files, D(1,4, n + 1) = compressed voice files, PI(1,2,n) = TCP/IP with IPSec, PI(1,3,n) = TCP/IP with SSL, PI(1,4, n + 1) = RTP/UDP} FB(2,n) = {F(2,n) = corporate WAN at month n, I(2,3,n) = 0, I(2,4,n) = 1, D(2,4, n + 1) = compressed voice files, PI(2,4, n + 1) = RTP/UDP} Introduction ◾ 27 FB(3,n) = {F(3,n) = corporate extranet at month n, I(3,4,n) = 0} FB(4,n) = {F(4,n) = VoIP at month n} Finally, assume that P*(1,n) = {FB(1,n), FB(2,n), FB(3,n), FB(4,n)} (these are the data networks).
