The Open Grid Alliance, a new industry initiative, seeks to bring the resources of grid to bear on edge computing networks.
Grid computing has been on the table for some time now. The concept of dynamically allocating underused compute resources to compute-intensive requirements has long been sought as a way to intelligently spread workloads. Now. with the rise of edge computing, grid adoption has taken on a whole new urgency.
A new industry initiative seeks to bring the resources of grid to bear on edge networks. The Open Grid Alliance (OGA) seeks to define and accelerate grid, which calls for an evolutionary rearchitecting of the Internet into a global, shared platform that distributes compute, data, and intelligence to when and where it’s needed, on demand. Dell Technologies, DriveNets, MobiledgeX, PacketFabric, Vapor IO and VMware are founding corporate members.
