``In the latest effort to put corporate teeth into the amorphous idea of 
grid computing, IBM, Hewlett-Packard and Intel have banded together, 
forming a new group called the Globus Consortium.

``The consortium will try to steer an open-source software package 
called the Globus Toolkit, which helps universities, companies and other 
customers run software on large groups of networked computers called 
grids. Grids today are chiefly used for high-performance computing tasks 
such as climate simulation, but computing companies believe they'll 
eventually run mainstream business software as well.''
