Sun expands grid offerings
By chhandomay on Feb 19, 2008
addition of 14 new applications in the Network.com Catalog, a
collection of online grid-enabled applications that are available from
Grid compute utility service on a pay-per-use basis. In addition,
we announced a new partner program, "Sun Network.com Connection,"
for ISV to create and expand on-demand service offerings and also
expanded Network.com's international availability.
With overviews of the Network.com history since it was first announced, IT Jungle commented, "... utility computing is still something that the company believes in as a long-term prospect for the IT industry." HPCWire highlighted the ISV support, and BetaNews liked Network.com's support of open source technology with applications like Blender, Zeus and GAP.
My favorite one came from InsideHPC, who wrote that Sun "sent a Valentine to potential Network.com customers" with the expanded catalog.
