As many of you probably saw (thank you, Google News Alerts), Digipede has just released a new version of our award-winning grid computing software, the Digipede Network.  Whew.

Last month’s least surprising (and least correct) cloud pronouncement

August 14th, 2008 · 2 Comments

OK, this one came out while I was on vacation, so it’s a little old, but I can’t let it pass. The new head of Red Hat, Jim Whitehurst, says “The clouds will all run Linux.” Really? What’s next? The head of Boeing telling us that all transportation will be via 787s? Or maybe a […]

Good article on Dan’l Lewin in (gasp) the SF Chronicle

June 27th, 2008 · No Comments

June 9th, 2008 · No Comments

In any case, Derrick Harris of Grid Today has done a great job of connecting the […]

We’ll be releasing Version 2.0 of the Digipede Network, and meeting with many analysts, press, customers, prospects, partners, and bartenders.  Since some of that could be pretty time consuming, we’ll also be […]
