Cloud and Grid Part I: Difference and Convergence


The first part of this paper is concerned with the generalized models of grid and cloud architectures as well as their mutual convergence. We study the examples of contemporary grids and clouds and next-generation mechanisms of achieving their unification into global confederation of clouds. The types and properties of virtual resources as well as approaches to their appropriate and efficient management in virtual machines are considered in the next following second part of the paper.
