Grid computing is the collection of computer resources from multiple locations to reach a common goal. The grid can be thought of as a distributed system with non-interactive workloads that involve a large number of files. Grid computing is distinguished from conventional high-performance computing systems such as cluster computing in that grid computers have each node set to perform a different task/application.
cloud computing is an information technology (IT) paradigm, a model for enabling ubiquitous access to shared pools of configurable resources (such as computer networks, servers, storage, applications and services), which can be rapidly provisioned with minimal management effort, often over the Internet. Cloud computing allows users and enterprises with various computing capabilities to store and process data either in a privately-owned cloud, or on a third-party server located in a data center - thus making data-accessing mechanisms more efficient and reliable.

Scope of Computer Networks

Computer networks help users on the network to share the resources and in communication. A network is a group of computers or computer like devices connected together to share the resources like file, printer, services etc. A typical network contains users working at workstations (also known as client), running client operating systems like Windows XP and store their files on a central server. The server computer has more resources like memory, disk space and more processing power compared with client computers. The server machine also run an Operating System, which has more processing capabilities compared with the client machine. The server may be installed with special software, which is helps it to function as a server. The special software allows file and print services, serve web pages, transfer emails etc.
