"Addressing a world where computing infrastructures are becoming increasing more complex, environments more mixed and time pressures more intense, Platform Computing Corp. today unveiled its newest version of the sophisticated resource management solution, LSF 4.0. Hailed as a key technology by the authors of 'The Grid: Blueprint for a New Computing Infrastructure,' Platform's LSF enables enterprises and users to share computing power to achieve better business results."

"LSF is the key enabling technology in some of the world's largest 'superclusters' where 100s, even 1,000s of computers work in concert on some of the most advanced computing projects ever devised. Used in a wide range of vertical markets including automotive, computer and semiconductor design, aerospace, finance, government and biotechnology, LSF gives enterprises the ability to fully maximize the use of their technical resources -- including applications, hardware and personnel."
