I believe it will take over, but might take some time.

Default Grid and cloud computing

Cloud hosting is based on the most innovative Cloud computing technologies that allow unlimited number of machines to act as one system. Other hosting solutions (shared or dedicated) depend on one machine only, while cloud hosting security is guaranteed by many servers. The cloud technology allows easy integration of extra resources, such as space or RAM and thus enable website growth.

Grid computing is the collection of computer resources from multiple locations to reach a common goal.The grid can be thought as a distributed system with non-interactive workloads that involve a large no. of files.

A computational grid is a hardware and software infrastructure that provides dependable, consistent, pervasive, and inexpensive access to high-end computational capabilities.
