How to use Selenium Grid

Selenium Grid helped me a lot in Compatibility check (Multiple Browsers & Multiple Platforms).This is grid helps us to execute multiple instances of WebDriver in parallel which uses the same code base (code which is present in only one system), hence the code need NOT be present on the other system they execute. The selenium-server-standalone includes Hub, WebDriver, and Selenium RC to execute the scripts in grid.
