"FastTango, Inc., a leader in cluster management software, today announced the acquisition of Coral Technologies, an Austin-based company that designs distributed computing software for "heavy lifting" applications in industrial settings.

The acquisition of Coral further solidifies the strength of FastTango"s flagship product, TangoWorks, slated for commercial release later this year. TangoWorks is a patent-pending software suite designed to manage clusters, groups of clusters and distributed resource networks for enterprise high performance and high availability computing architectures.

Linux clusters are attractive due to very low initial costs which can be 90 percent less that that of traditional servers. However, lifetime administration costs can by high due to the complexities of managing clusters. TangoWorks is designed to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of Linux clusters by masking the complexities inherent in large cluster installations."
