Germany to plug in national grid

The German government on Wednesday is expected to launch a multiyear
effort with IBM to use grid computing for advanced research.

Called the Deutschland Grid, or D-Grid, the initiative involves
linking several machines together to tackle complex computing tasks
for scientific research.

The German minister of science, Edelgard Bulmahn, is expected to
announce the D-Grid plan in Berlin at a meeting of the Global Grid
Forum, a grid computing standards body, according to IBM.
