Thanks for your question!

I know that there is a lot of confusion around how we are referring to
these technologies. 

What I am looking for may be called a cluster in the sense that a complete,
100+-node infrastructure of high-end, Xeon servers running Linux resides at
one location. It's probably connected to a SAN with fabric of Ethernet,
Infiniband or Fibre Channel.

And maybe they're running really sophisticated Celera or Accelrys

Is that consistent with your experience?

By "grid", do you mean "cluster"?
