UD offers comprehensive grid and infrastructure management software and services to enable the virtualization of applications across all areas of the business. We help organizations build enterprise grid infrastructures and develop centralized grid service offerings to optimize application workflow at dramatically reduced costs.

Innovative Solutions
UD solutions optimize an organization's existing resources (including clusters, servers and desktops) to create an enterprise-wide capacity on-demand environment to maximize application performance and license utilization for both business side and HPC applications.

Our products include the flagship Grid MP platform, which creates a dynamic virtual infrastructure to transform existing systems, storage, and networks into a powerful on-demand resource. Grid MP enables any organization to coordinate and share existing applications across complex, geographically dispersed enterprises.

We also offer the leading enterprise meta-scheduling solution MP Synergy for virtualized control over the entire HPC infrastructure. With MP Synergy, organizations can manage job scheduling using Grid MP and also across heterogeneous, widely distributed resources - including clusters operated by 3rd party tools like LSF and PBS, dedicated servers, and non-dedicated desktop resources.
