GridwiseTech joins Enabling Grid for E-sciencE (EGEE) Business

Krakow, 26th March 2007 - GridwiseTech, the vendor-independent expert in Grid computing and virtualization of distributed IT infrastructure, has joined the Enabling Grid for E sciencE (EGEE) Business Associate programme, building on the longstanding relationship between GridwiseTech and EGEE. Together, GridwiseTech and EGEE will work on joint promotion to the business community to highlight the potential of Grid technology as a solution for today's IT problems.

Through the Business Associate Programme, EGEE will benefit from GridwiseTech's advice on engagement of the businesses community and will benefit from GridwiseTech's experience in integrating the proprietary systems of its customers with EGEE's Grid. In return, GridwiseTech will gain valuable access to the rapidly growing research community using Grids, as well as the unique knowledge base built up by EGEE in the construction of its large-scale infrastructure.

"We have long experience in consulting with industrial customers and working with large scale resources," said GridwiseTech president Pawel Plaszczak. "Our work with EGEE has always been very exciting, and we feel that joining the program is an ideal way to strengthen it. Such cooperation also helps bring together the academic and commercial Grid opportunities, for the benefit of the Grid community as a whole."

"We're very happy to welcome GridwiseTech as a Business Associate," said Bob Jones, Director of EGEE. "The programme helps us ensure the results of our project are passed on to the commercial sector. Our discussions with GridwiseTech and the other Business Associates also lead directly into our development plans, as they provide valuable perspectives on our work."

GridwiseTech has worked with EGEE since 2005 on a range of subjects, including producing a universal, application-level business portal to the EGEE infrastructure. GridwiseTech has also integrated the job management environments of large industrial customers with the EGEE compute resources, allowing companies to use external processing to meet peak demands for their advanced applications.
