1. Obviously, everything is becoming bigger, faster, pore powerful, more efficient, and ultimately cheaper, all at about the same time. 2. Probably not any time soon. For something to actually render all of the above obsolete, it would have to not only match what those things are already doing separately, but also improve on how and how fast they do them all together, which I don’t think we’ve quite reached that milestone yet. 3. I think it will, and as in the case example, even former mainframe pariahs who have had considerable experience with a grid are toting it’s obvious benefits compared to mainframes. As for security, I think it could be a great risk to someone who wasn’t careful. Historically, networks are much easier to crack into than mainframes, and that’s just counting the external safety concerns. A well-meaning employee who wasn’t aware of what they were doing or how to do it could cause some serious damage, unintentionally, if not securely kept out of certain areas of the network.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
