True Grid

Hewlett-Packard announced today sweeping initiatives that will 
radically “grid-enable” both HP products and services. Widespread grid 
computing takes HP’s touted Adaptive Enterprise strategy one step further. 

Grid computing is the virtualization of distributed computing and 
resources, enabling seamless access to all of an organization’s IT 
capabilities. Grid enablement is standards driven, most prominently through the 
Open Grid Services Architecture (OGSA) and the Globus Toolkit. The 
concept was originally driven by universities, supercomputing and 
scientific research, but HP says that nowadays it does more grid-related 
business in the high-performance technical computing space, including in 
manufacturing, life sciences, energy and industrial research. In the future, 
the company expects grid computing to go mainstream in enterprises. 

I talked to Nick van der Zweep, director of utility computing for HP's 
Enterprise Systems Group, who said HP plans to grid enable every 
business product from $200 iPAQs to printers to software. "It's going to be a 
while before every single device in the world from every single vendor 
and every piece of software is grid-enabled,” van der Zweep told me, 
but “we're headed that way.”  -- Mike Elgan

HP CFO: European outlook appears weak

Bob Wayman, HP's chief financial officer, said Wednesday the company is 
hopeful for a little upside in the U.S. during this quarter in terms of 
performance, but added that the contribution from European operations 
may offset that as the European economy "is a little weaker" than

Inside HP This Week

Real Deal on Real Estate: HP's consolidation in the Sacramento, Calif., 
area may create a bargain for some other company. HP is moving its 
Roseville, Calif., server and storage hardware assembly operation to 
Houston (where it's NOT a dry heat) so the complex it will vacate in October 
is up for lease. Some lucky leasers could get a big discount on the 
space since HP had to pony up some cash to get out of the lease. The 
complex's owners, Amir Development of Beverly Hills, may use that cash to 
offset lower rents it may charge to attract new tenants in an area with 
almost 12 percent vacancy rates for industrial space, MSNBC reported.
