Oracle(r) Grid Index Demonstrates Global Accelerated Adoption of Grid Computing

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From Oracle Corp.]

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. 06-APR-2005 Oracle today unveiled the results of its latest Oracle(r) Grid Index research, which measures global adoption of Grid Computing technologies. The overall Oracle Grid Index score for businesses across North America, Europe and Asia Pacific is 4.41, on a scale of 0 to 10.

The new research builds on last year's European pilot by providing a global snapshot along with European trend information on organizations' attitudes about, and adoption of, Grid Computing. Analysis of underlying indices and comparison with the overall score of 3.1 unveiled at the European launch in September 2004 indicates growing progress toward global adoption of Grid Computing. This year, North America had the highest score of the three regions (4.50), while Europe showed considerable advancement (4.39) and Asia Pacific proved to be well-placed to make rapid progress in adoption of this ground-breaking technology (4.37). However, the results showed that no one region enjoys an outstanding lead on the path to Grid Computing; indeed, the findings point to a finely balanced race.
