Why It's Significant

"Platform Computing has a history of expertise in grid computing and workload automation," says Burton Group senior analyst Chris Wolf, "and I believe several virtualization vendors will look to leverage Platform Computing's proven architecture as they build out products to compete with workload automation alternatives such as VMware's Distributed Resource Scheduler."

Key Products

  • VM Orchestrator (load blancing and VM management)
  • Enterprise Grid Orchestrator (multi-site server grid manager)
