Games developers to train for grid

Butterfly.net, an IBM-backed effort to use grid computing technology to run online games, announced a training program Thursday for games developers looking to build large-scale online titles. Butterfly's first BootCamp is set run for two weeks next June at the University of Charleston in West Virginia. Details and sign-up information are available at Butterfly's Web site.

Grid computing is a growing technology in which multiple computers are linked together to share computational tasks, allowing resources to be easily and efficiently shared according to demand. Butterfly is promoting the approach as a way to reduce the cost and complexity of maintaining online games.
