Abstract Research advances in the distributed computing have led to grid computing, which unlike many other areas of distributed computing focuses on large‐scale resource sharing and discovery for better performance. Traditionally, grid computing has been performed in a client/server format. However, recent advances in the area of peer‐to‐peer computing have brought a paradigm shift in the field of distributed systems and have forced researchers in the area of grid computing to discuss peer‐to‐peer grids. In this article, we will review the work done in the area of grid computing and discuss peer‐to‐peer grids with a focus on a framework that provides incentive to the participating resources in a peer‐to‐peer grid environment. The framework provides the basis for defining a utility function that is used by participating nodes to efficiently allocate the resources that are available in a system. We finish by mentioning the evolving area of cloud computing. Copyright © 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
