Grid computing to generate $1.8 bln in Europe by 2008

IDC says grid computing adoption in Western Europe, although still nascent, is expected to reach beyond the high performance computing (HPC) space and will become more pervasive in commercial data centers over the next few years. IDC’s European Enterprise Server Group forecasts that grid computing will approach $1.8 bln in server revenue by 2008 across HPC technical markets and commercial applications.
