Metacomputing

It is network based computing using distributed resources. Metacomputer is a system formed by a collection of heterogenous resources (both in hardware and software) which are ubiquitously present on the network. Metacomputer gives the impression of a single powerful computer.
Characteristics:
* Resources are heterogeneous(softwar/hardware/networking) and geographically distributed.
* Idle processor harvesting systems.
* Screensavers, Applets, light clients.
* Can be called Distributed Supercomputing.
