Univa - Supported Globus Grid

www.univa.com Univa is transforming enterprise IT by harnessing the power of Globus open source software to deliver enterprise-class products, technical support, and professional services to corporations and government.

Grid challenge, Univa solution

Grid technology, such as Globus software, increases a company's flexibility and speed by optimizing the use of existing IT resources. This is why the market for Grid technology is expanding quickly around the globe—it's estimated to reach at least $5 billion in 2008.

The problem is that open source Globus software is still largely unpackaged and unsupported for enterprise use. That's where Univa comes in.

Founded in early 2004 by Globus pioneers Steve Tuecke, Dr. Ian Foster, and Dr. Carl Kesselman, Univa bases its solutions on Globus software. Our products, solutions, and services focus on providing commercially supported, open source middleware that can be used by our partners and enterprise customers in conjunction with a broad set of branded products and technologies.
