Digipede Technologies Announces General Availability of Digipede Network 2.2

Oakland, Calif. (PRWEB) June 12, 2009 -- Leading grid software provider Digipede Technologies today announced general availability of version 2.2 of its award-winning grid software solution for the Microsoft Windows platform. The Digipede Network 2.2 delivers increased performance, and provides new compatibility with the latest Microsoft technologies.

In addition, Digipede announced that the Digipede Network had now been selected by more than 50 customers around the world for grid deployments ranging from financial services to high-end defense systems.

"We're delighted by the response from early users of this release," said John Powers, President of Digipede. "Users have seen noticeable performance improvements for some important use cases, and have seen smoother installations in combination with new Microsoft technologies like .NET 4.0. And more efficient streaming of files between the Digipede Server and Agents allows users to consider distributing applications that may not have been good candidates for grid computing before."

"The 'sleeper' feature for this release seems to be compatibility with IronPython," continued Powers. "We added this feature without knowing what to expect from users -- and then IronPython users from all over the world just came out of the woodwork and started requesting evaluation copies. The IronPython community is passionate and tightly connected, and word has gotten around fast -- if you want to run compute-intensive applications on a grid using IronPython, get the Digipede Network."

"Microsoft's partners are building incredible solutions on these new technologies," said Allison Watson, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group, Microsoft. "Our partners are the critical link to delivering customer value and solving complex industry, research and core business challenges. By working closely with partners like Digipede, we are transforming the way people work and delivering on the promise of People Ready software."

The Digipede Network is deployed at leading enterprises worldwide to accelerate and scale a broad variety of applications. The Digipede Network 2.2 integrates with Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008, Windows HPC Server, and other Windows Server 2008 products, allowing developers to write .NET or COM applications that take advantage of hundreds or thousands of computers. This makes powerful grid computing solutions practical, easy and affordable for Windows-based systems. Additional information on the various Digipede Networks editions can be found at .
