Internet service provider Jaring Communications wants to link all the data centres in the country to form a computing grid. Such a grid of computers will make it easier and faster to crunch out solutions to all sorts of problems, such as medical cures, better buildings and safer vehicles.
If all goes well, this will become Jaring’s OneGrid high-performance computing service. OneGrid will eventually form part of the national cloud-computing infrastructure that will push local industries forward. Jaring chairman Datuk Md Khir Abdul Rahman said the national computing grid will be especially beneficial to the local research and development circles because it will allow researchers to do more despite having tight monetary budgets.
