Grid technologies are still evolving, with standards yet to be defined and reliable production-level solutions yet to be found. Nevertheless, Grid already stepped out of the cradle and slowly but steadily finds its way to the world of the modern information technologies. Early testers and adopters of this innovative technology are researchers in various fields of science, primarily those that traditionally require massive computational resources. Destined by the virtue of their occupation to investigate new phenomena, they provide most valuable feedback to the Grid technology developers, helping to shape the designs and define the roadmaps. Historically, researchers in High Energy Physics were the first to appreciate the Grid idea, not just as the consumers, but also as the key developers of many current solutions.
