Cloud Computing: 
Cloud Computing is a Client-server computing architecture. In cloud computing, resources are used in centralized pattern and cloud computing is a high accessible service. It is a pay and use business means, in cloud computing, the users pay for the use 

 

Grid Computing: 
Grid Computing is a Distributed computing architecture. In grid computing, resources are used in collaborative pattern, and also in grid computing, the users do not pay for use. 

 



Let’s see the difference between cloud and grid computing which are given below:
