November 5, 2002 -- San Francisco, Calif. -- Axceleon, the leader in high-performance clustering, announced today that it has acquired the highly regarded, and widely deployed EnFuzion clustering solution from Turbolinux.
Axceleon’s EnFuzion software utilizes the combined power of networked computers to significantly reduce application execution time. EnFuzion works with all available computing hardware, including rack mounted servers, Blade servers, idle desktops, and dedicated servers.
"Axceleon is extremely excited about the addition of EnFuzion," said Michael Duffy, President and CEO at Axceleon. "Not only have we acquired an amazing technology, but we have also gained a world class development team, which includes some of the world’s top experts in clustering and supercomputing."
Currently, EnFuzion is deployed globally by a wide range of organizations; including banks, brokerage firms, the life sciences, video production studios, energy providers, government agencies, and universities. Clients include J.P. Morgan Chase, Procter & Gamble, CBS News, Electricite de France, International Monetary Fund, Indus Corporation and Yale University.
Axceleon’s EnFuzion is based on a straightforward concept called parametric execution. Parametric execution is where the same application is executed several times with a different set of input parameters. Examples of parametric execution include what-if simulations, scenario analysis, and Monte Carlo simulations. Parametric executions can demand extensive compute resources, which can be satisfied only by concurrent job execution on a large number of computers. EnFuzion is optimized to efficiently manage and execute a high volume of parametric jobs on a large number of computers, thus delivering optimal acceleration and resource utilization. EnFuzion is easily integrated with existing hardware and software; therefore no additional investments are required in IT infrastructure.
"Axceleon is revolutionizing the high-performance market by delivering an easy-to-use solution that does not require expensive investments in technology or specialized knowledge," said Rok Sosic, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer at Axceleon. "With EnFuzion, customers can significantly reduce application execution time at a very low cost."
William Peterson, Industry Veteran and CEO at market consulting firm, Tactical Communications states, "EnFuzion is a world class clustering solution that offers a number of attractive features, most notably its ability to seamlessly integrate into existing IT architectures. EnFuzion is a true and tested technology, illustrated by its dynamic user base around the world."
Major EnFuzion features include:
* Optimized for parametric execution -- executing same application many times with a different set of input parameters
