Network.com: Development Options on the Grid

Network.com, Sun's network-accessible grid platform, just became a whole lot more available. On the geographic front, it's now available outside the U.S. in many other countries including Canada, China, Japan, India, Singapore, and many countries within the E.U.

This newly-expanded availability goes beyond new points of access to include wider availability of the platform in terms of what it can do. Group product manager for Network.com, Rohit Valia, met with Innovating@Sun host Hal Stern, to discuss the new and exciting features in detail. A key goal of the Network.com expansion is to reach developers in new ways and expand their development options on the grid. Listen to the podcast to learn about:

  • Developer access to APIs for integration into their code
  • A NetBeans plug-in for access to job submission and data transfer
  • IT insurance - the use of APIs to automate the transfer of workload spikes
  • Making Network.com available as a back-end facility for people writing mash-up applications
  • The expansion of applications beyond the enterprise into the mass market space
  • Dynamically allocated compute nodes that allow applications from outside the grid to talk to those inside the grid
  • How Sun is making it transparent for developers to plug in popular IDEs
