Thanks, Don!

Don Canning describes “how a startup becomes an industry success,” providing his own take on our recent demonstration of the Digipede Network running on Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 (CCS) at the Securities Industry Association (SIA) Technology Management Conference. 

When Don says:

Microsoft as a team is working closely with Digipede Technologies to enable seamless programmatic integration between .NET applications and cluster resources,

He’s not kidding — many, many thanks to the Microsoft Financial Services Group, the CCS team, the Office 2007 team, and the .NET team for their enthusiastic support! 

(Dan Ciruli also has some additional information on additional integration we’ve demonstrated since that event, in his post on “Putting a grid behind Excel 2007.”)

Don is also correct in pointing out the numerous compelling advantages this Microsoft / Digipede solution has over Linux grid solutions; I’ll have more on that in subsequent posts.

Thanks to Don and the whole Emerging Business Team for continuing to open doors, at Microsoft and beyond, to help this startup become an industry success.
