What’s the Difference Between Cluster, Grid and Cloud Computing?

After my last post on introductory videos on cloud computing, I was asked if there were videos that explained the difference between Cluster, Grid and Cloud Computing. Here is a very good one by Prof. Ajit Pal, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Kharagpu. He explains the architectural differences between these platforms, as well as the implications for maintenance, deployment and cost. Although long at 55 min, this video is worthwhile for its technical approach for computer professionals  and for scientists wishing to exploit these approaches to computing.
