Platform Computing Pushes Grids

Platform Computing Pushes Grids

Platform Computing intends to provide industry-specific grid solutions to the financial services, government and the electronic business and meanwhile has set up global grid acceleration centers for the three sectors, one in New York for Wall Street, one on San Jose, California for Silicon Valley, and one in Washington, DC for the bureaucrats. It's also supposed to announce an integrated Open Grid Service Architecture (OGSI)-compliant product suite, a partnership with the recently grid-besotted Oracle and new applications integration that supposedly wrings business value from grids. It intends to increase service levels and optimize the IT infrastructure with software meant to plan, build and manage grids. Meanwhile, HP in the name of its Adaptive Enterprise scheme and harkening back to its DEC roots has recently said it will grid- enable its entire product line with the Globus Toolkit and OGSI 2.0 - soon to be 3.0 - over the next 12-18 months.
