This article describes the state of the art in using supercomputers in Grids. It focuses on various approaches in Grid computing that either aim to replace supercomputing or integrate supercomputers in existing Grid environments. We further point out the limitations to Grid approaches when it comes to supercomputing. We also point out the potential of supercomputers in Grids for economic usage. For this, we describe a publicprivate partnership in which this approach has been employed for more than 10 years. By giving such an overview we aim at better understanding the role of supercomputers and Grids and their interaction.
