Abstract: The years 2000 and 2001 have seen significant advances in Grid computing. While in early 2000, Grid computing was a novel concept that most scientists were being exposed to for the first time, we now see considerable consensus on Grid architecture, a solid and widely adopted technology base, major funding initiatives, a wide variety of projects developing applications and technologies, and major deployment projects aimed at creating robust Grid infrastructures. I provide a summary of major developments and trends, focusing on the Globus open source Grid software project and the GriPhyN data grid project. Reprinted from Proc.
