Grid技術を汎用アプリケーションにも適用

グリッドに関する記事。GlobusWorldというコンファレンスがBostonであったらしい。
大銀行Wachoviaで積極的に取り組んでいるという記述あり。
Robert Ortegaというのは、Convexでエンジニアをやっていた奴か?
グリッドに汎用アプリケーションを乗せるのに、DataSynapse Inc.’s GridServer というツールを使っている模様。
Users eye computer grids as potential servers for mainstream apps – Computerworld

Computer grids are emerging as potential application servers for mainstream business uses, which could broaden their deployment in corporate enterprises, said IT managers and vendors who attended the GlobusWorld conference here last week.

But Robert Ortega, Wachovia’s vice president of architecting and engineering, said he believes grid computing may be ready for broader use. “We have started thinking of the grid as a virtual application server,” said Ortega, who outlined his work with the technology during a presentation at the conference.

Wachovia is testing a new version of New York-based DataSynapse Inc.’s GridServer software, which would allow Ortega to move application servers based on technology such as J2EE or .Net to the grid. “We’re looking at this thing as a platform for running the services that make up an SOA,” he said, referring to a service-oriented architecture.
