While there is general consensus that computing platforms underlying the grid infrastructures will continue to evolve, variance in the speed of technology acceleration in HPC is causing many of the assumptions made in the early days of grid to no longer hold. Such divergence
in the metrics, as well as wider proliferation of related technologies such as Web2.0, will be changing the optimal design of the overall grid infrastructure towards more centralization. Based on our recent
experiences with our TSUBAME supercomputer, which is currently Asia-Pac's fastest machine according to the Top500, and its next petascale generation design thereof, we will discuss the future design of multi-petascale grids with such machines being constituent massive resource
nodes instead of vast distribution.
