Virtualization and the Case for Universal Grid Architectures

Traditional computing architectures have been based about 99% on monolithic systems clustered together to form larger virtual systems or to create a system designed for a higher level of availability. These very architectures are hampering the mobility and dynamism that virtualization enables. For virtual environments to reach their full potential, infrastructure must move beyond monolithic clustered architectures to far more extensible grids.
