Grid computing has emerged as a new paradigm for high performance computing. One of the objectives of Grid is to enable users to access remote resources and federate distributed computers for large-scale computational processes. Nowadays, the term of GRID is still a "Myth" for many non-computer science literate researchers. We see some degree of confusion in the IT industry since various terminologies such as on-demand computing, cloud computing, service oriented architecture and virtualization are bandied. This presentation will discuss on these issues and helps researchers to differentiate among the jargons. Some current Grid related projects which have been conducted globally in different domains are presented. It helps to inspire more researchers to apply this technology in the appropriate area for our daily life and science development. Some guides and concerns are presented to those interests in utilizing Grid for technology advancement.
