Grid computing system is different from conventional distributed computing systems by its focus on large-scale resource sharing, where processors and communication have significant influence on grid computing reliability. Most previous research on conventional small-scale distributed systems ignored the communication time and processing time when studying the distributed program reliability, which is not practical in the analysis of grid computing systems. This paper describes the property of the grid computing systems and presents algorithms to analyze the grid program and system reliability.
