Revolutionary new software which harnesses the power of networked computers to analyze data at high speeds is being developed by new start-up company Manjrasoft Pty Ltd and researchers within the University of Melbourne, Australia.The technology enables Cloud computing, the next generation of utility/distributed computing, supporting high speed application processing across Windows desktops and servers
“Whether it be complex drug development problems, investment risk or conveyor belt logistics, the software “Aneka” offers versatility and cost savings to businesses by extracting greater productivity from existing infrastructure and data intensive applications,” said Associate Professor Raj Buyya of the University of Melbourne’s Computer Science & Software Engineering Department who has led the research.
The uniqueness of the software “Aneka” (Sanskrit for ‘many in one’) offers the choice of multiple processing models to analyze large scale tasks, whilst offering customers more versatility with the ability to negotiate time frames and pricing of tasks.
“Our point of difference is that Aneka supports multiple application programming models unlike others in the marketplace,” said A/Prof Buyya.
“This is changing the face of computing - making computing work the way we want.”
“This is about being able to readily distribute, scale, manage and quickly reconfigure computing tasks across discrete pieces of infrastructure,” he said.
