Brain Murmurs announces a free 30-day evaluation program for its JIVA Grid Computing System.

Prospective customers can now evaluate the use and impact of JIVA before committing to a purchase.

Brain Murmurs, Inc, a Seattle-based software research and development company, today announced a new 30-day evaluation program for its JIVA grid-computing product. Under the new program, prospective customers will be able to run the JIVA grid computing system on their networks for 30-days at no cost.

"This is basically a try-before-you-buy program." said Daniel Pasco, Chief Engineer and Executive Vice President of Brain Murmurs, “Prospective customers can now evaluate the use and impact of JIVA before committing to a purchase.”

The program also includes a benchmarking application that will allow users to measure the actual computing capability of their computers, both in absolute GFLOPS and in equivalent dedicated hardware. The program also provides a side-by-side cost comparison of JIVA to its equivalent dedicated hardware.

The JIVA client can be installed as a screen saver or background process on Windows, OS X, Linux and UNIX operating systems. When the computer is idle, the client runs solver code provided by the JIVA server to perform naturally parallel jobs such as 3D rendering or protein folding.

JIVA was used by Giant Campus during the summer of 2005 and has been running for over a year on a 50-machine network at Cardiologists of Lubbock.

Parties interested in developing applications for the JIVA framework or licensing the framework for their own use are invited to contact Brain Murmurs.
