English abstract:
Cloud Computing represents a novel and promising
approach for implementing scalable ICT systems for
individual-, communities-, and business-use relying on the
latest achievements of diverse research areas, such as Grid
computing, Service oriented computing, business processes,
and virtualization. From the technological point of view Grid
computing is considered as the most related predecessor
technology of Cloud computing. Although, Cloud and Grid
computing differ in many aspects, as for example, in the
general idea of the provision of computational resource,
which is in Clouds commercial based and in Grids community
based, there are many similarities. In this paper we investigate
the similarities and differences between Clouds and Grids by
evaluating two successful projects, namely for the provision
of native hight performance copmputing applications as Grid
workflows and for the self-management of Cloud infrastructures.
