UPPSALA, Sweden, Dec. 14 -- Acumem, a provider of intelligent software for single- and multicore environments, today announced that it has secured additional funding. This funding enables Acumem to continue to focus on accelerating its ongoing development of its cutting-edge energy efficiency technology.
Acumem's optimization technology has shown great potential to automatically improve efficiency in datacenters and servers by dynamically allocate threads and memory to applications and cores. Thanks to Acumem's fast and rich data collection and analysis, optimization can be made on the fly and take mixed workloads and the specification of the system into consideration.
"The potential for increasing energy efficiency is high and our pre study has shown that it is possible to get 5-15 percent higher efficiency by using automatic optimization based on our technology," says Mats Nilsson, VP Engineering at Acumem.
Acumem has been awarded a major research grant from Vinnova (The Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems). The research grant, which covers 2009 and 2010 aims at the new energy efficiency product line currently being developed. This project is also supported by Energimyndigheten and current shareholders.
"This new funding provides a good foundation for Acumem to develop new innovative technology alongside our currently available tools for programmers, Acumem SlowSpotter and ThreadSpotter," says Mats Hovmöller, CEO at Acumem.
Acumem's technology enables owners of systems and applications to get the best performance from their system or application in both single- and multicore environments. Acumem ThreadSpotter has proven to increase throughput in many applications by a factor of five or more, improving general scalability, saving processor cycles and decreasing power consumption.
Acumem is a provider of intelligent software that analyzes and optimizes application software performance in single- and multicore environments. Acumem contributes to its customers' success in maximizing the benefits of multicore technology, achieving the full potential of their systems. Acumem works closely with leading companies in the multicore market such as HP, Sun, Microsoft, Intel, IBM and AMD. Acumem is a privately held company based in Uppsala, Sweden.
