What is the difference between eScience infrastructures and grid computing or distributed computing infrastructures? And what are some of their examples.
I can not distinguish them clearly. Is it how a grid is used make it an e-science platform?
eScience appears to be a British governmental term for Computational Science done on distributed computing systems and the surrounding infrastructure such as databases and the like. The term in the United States is "Cyberinfrastructure"...because it was the 90s and Al Gore was involved. Both appear to be largely governmental terms for specifically governmental projects involving large scale computing involving scientific research.
