SimpliGrid software is the first product that simplifies the provisioning and use of clusters and Grids for Microsoft Windows XP and Vista environments. Using a familiar "drag and drop" interface, Bio-IT researchers and scientists can easily structure Grids and distribute processing tasks across systems. By optimizing computer infrastructure, SimpliGrid software enables users to get more work done in less time.
Effective today, through May 31, a free trial release candidate version of SimpliGrid is exclusively available to the Bioinformatics.Org members on www.bioinformatics.org. Participating users will be eligible to purchase a SimpliGrid license at the promotional cost of $99,00 after the scheduled full product release on August 15.
"Researchers and scientists tend to have significant computing capacity available in their labs, but struggle with the complexities of combining these systems to create effective clusters or Grids", stated Dale Geldart, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, eXludus Technologies. "With SimpliGrid software, there is no learning curve. You simply point-and-click. In a lab environment, full computing capacity may be easily applied to processing life sciences applications.
