Sun, Univa Give Partnership a Boost

Univa Corp., the leading provider of open source software, support, and services for cluster and grid solutions, today announced a multi-level relationship with Sun Microsystems. The agreement includes: an OEM and support agreement for Sun’s Grid Engine to be integrated into the Univa Globus Cluster Edition software; membership to the Sun Partner Advantage Program; and co-marketing/co-sales efforts.
“Univa and Sun are a natural match,” says Fritz Ferstl, Sun Microsystems’ director of Grid Engine. “Combining two advanced technologies like this provides additional benefits for our customers. This is a clear win-win for all of us. Now Univa’s customers will have access to the Sun Grid Engine commercial product and thus will be able to easily take advantage of Sun’s HPC product and services stack, including Sun HPC ClusterTools and the advanced features of the Solaris 10 Operating System like Solaris Containers and Solaris Dynamic Tracing (DTrace). We are very pleased with this relationship and look forward to working with Univa.” Full Story


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
