A distributed-computing technique in which multiple distributed computers are treated as a single, virtual, high-performance computer. By putting to use processing and storage capacity that would otherwise be going unused, and distributing processes among multiple computers, grid computing can handle intensive loads that are beyond the capacity of a single computer.
