Sun.com: Sun Grid Engine Software Now Available For LinuxJan 31, 2001, 23:43 (3 Talkback[s])
"Building on the success of Sun[tm] Grid Engine software for the Solaris[tm] Operating Environment -- which has been downloaded by over 1000 organizations in 70 countries since its launch in September 2000, Sun Grid Engine software for the Linux platform is now available. Both the Solaris and Linux versions of Sun Grid Engine software use the same source code base. Sun Grid Engine software can now be used in Solaris and Linux environments, and mixed Solaris and Linux environments."
"Sun Grid Engine software is designed to harness idle compute resources, match them to individual job requirements and deliver network-wide compute power to the desktop, thus speeding time to market and fundamentally changing the economics of technical computing. Sun foresees "compute farms" -- the architecture created using distributed resource management (DRM) software such as Sun Grid Engine software as the platform of choice for high-performance computing. Sun Grid Engine software is designed to provide the massive scalability and agility needed to help companies keep pace with and capitalize on the Net Effect -- the macro-economic trend that is driving the exponential growth and increasing complexity the industry is experiencing as data, users, devices,services and uptime/availability requirements continue to multiply."
"Sun Grid Engine software helps solve the problem of how to apply maximum resources to a single compute-intensive problem, and achieving massive scalability within the technical marketplace."
