Oakland, Calif. (PRWEB) February 4, 2008
Leading grid software provider Digipede™ Technologies (http://www.digipede.net) today announced free licenses to its powerful, award-winning Digipede Network™ grid computing solution for technology professionals named by Microsoft as Most Valuable Professionals, or MVPs. The MVP designation is reserved for technology innovators and influencers who have earned wide recognition, making them exceptional community assets whose professional assessments allow informed technology decision-making at organizations around the world.
The free licenses, available to all current Microsoft MVPs, include a fully featured copy of the Digipede Network Professional Edition, which includes five Digipede Agent Processor licenses. In addition, MVPs will receive five more Agent Processor licenses, for a total of 10 free, deployable Agents. Each Digipede Agent manages a single compute node on a grid. With today's quad-core processors, these free licenses will give Microsoft MVPs up to a 40-core grid, capable of processing nearly 40 times as much as a single core.
"The Microsoft MVP community has become one of the single, greatest concentrations of industry influencers and innovators in the Windows world," said John Powers, CEO of Digipede. "Any company facing a need to deploy web services or other new architectures on Windows-based platforms pays attention to these influencers. MVPs are seeing more questions from customers about how to apply distributed computing tools and techniques to deliver increased application performance, and we want to give them access to the best tools available for grid-enabling a broad variety of Windows applications."
Microsoft MVPs will also receive a licensed copy of the acclaimed Digipede Framework Software Development Kit (SDK), which provides the tools and information needed to grid-enable applications quickly and easily. The SDK can scale out compute-intensive and transaction-intensive applications as needed, with order-of-magnitude performance improvements - often with just a few lines of code. The grid can be scaled up with as many additional Agents as needed and integrates easily with existing security installations, quickly providing powerful, low-latency distributed computing capabilities using commodity hardware.
The Digipede Network integrates with Microsoft SQL Server, Visual Studio, Windows HPC Server, and other Windows Server products, allowing developers to write .NET or COM applications that take advantage of hundreds or thousands of computers. This makes powerful grid computing solutions practical, easy and affordable for Windows-based systems.
