What is Grid computing?

Grid computing is a method of doing computing tasks that demand high processing ability by splitting the task and dividing it into a network of computers as small ones such that each of them can individually handle. Looking from the other end, a grid may  be defined as a virtual computer with super computing ability made up of a network of computers( a cluster in fact) which acts together to form a highly efficient system able to process big tasks.
