The system that results from using distributed computation to evenly spread computational resources across a network. Like a power grid, a computing grid would allow a consumer wired into the grid to have access to an equal amount of resources as any other consumer on the grid regardless of the amount of resources being provided by their locale

A computing grid also brings up the possibilities of computing power being produced and sold like electrical power, and the similar concept of a data grid.
