ASPEED Software Expands to Europe
NEW YORK----July 19, 2005--
ASPEED(TM), the global leader in GRID-enabling solutions and Ireland-based ViewPoint Software Limited (VPSL) today announced the signing of a reseller partnership to deliver on the promise of GRID computing for European companies.
The agreement reflects the increasing demand for a solution that can accelerate the migration of business-critical, legacy applications to GRID-enabled and distributed environments. Working together, ViewPoint and ASPEED will deliver unprecedented access to the power of distributed computing for even the most computationally intense applications, leveraging ASPEED's ACCELLERANT(TM) software to move notoriously non-parallel, non-distributed legacy applications to commodity processor GRIDs quickly, cost effectively and with minimal risk.
ViewPoint Software Ltd is a leading provider of Web-based eBusiness solutions for small and medium-sized businesses located in the UK and Ireland. With this announcement, ViewPoint is expanding its offerings to address the growing market for GRID-enabling solutions.
"Until now, the move to GRID has not been a realistic proposition for many organizations," said Russell Cunningham, founder of VPSL. "We're excited to bring the ACCELLERANT solution to European companies who want to put GRID computing to the test and know that they will find that the performance improvements, fault-tolerance, potential cost savings and projected ROI speaks for itself."
ASPEED's ACCELLERANT is used by financial services, pharmaceutical and other organizations that rely on complex applications to leverage new multi-CPU, cluster and GRID configurations, while ensuring predictable and highly-scalable run times. The software provides an expedient path to significantly reducing time-to-decisions, handling exponentially higher volumes and delivering more fine-grained analysis for higher precision, while using more cost-effective distributed Linux and Windows-based cluster or GRID configurations.
"GRID technology acceptance in Europe is still trailing the United States, partially because of the re-engineering efforts required to leverage the underlying infrastructure," said Greg Ammirati, vice-president, worldwide field operations for ASPEED Software. "Our partnership with ViewPoint Software promises to change the perception and efforts of the resource investments involved and help European customers fast-track the "cost-saving/performance-boosting" GRID implementations of legacy applications."
