Availigent, a provider of Application
Service Management software for Linux-based, dynamic data centers, has
joined the Open Grid Forum to accelerate the development of a common
set of standards for Grid computing. Grid computing is an emerging
computing model that allows many networked computers and data resources
to be dynamically pooled and shared as virtual resources.
"Providing the automated intelligence needed by enterprise Grid data centers is Availigent's mission, and we are pleased to join the Open Grid Forum as it strives to bring standardization to Grid software," said Availigent CEO, Bud Michael. "One of the OGF's goals is to better integrate enterprise Grid architectures with virtualization efforts, and that meshes perfectly with Availigent's application virtualization capability."
Availigent's Duration software allows data center managers to monitor the health and performance of applications, operating systems and networks and employ virtualization to migrate live applications to alternate resources without interruption or loss of data.
"OGF welcomes Availigent as a new class of application service management firm bringing efficiency and productivity gains to the data center," said Mark Linesch, OGF president. "Solution providers such as Availigent are critical collaborators helping OGF develop software interoperability standards and best practices to accelerate Grid adoption."
Michael said Availigent would participate in an OGF working groups concerned with both industry trends and technical applications. Michael will take the lead in the former and Allan Havemose, Availigent's chief technology officer, will have responsibility for the latter.
