Dot Hill BV And Primeur/EnterTheGrid Collaborate On Grid Computing News

7/26/2002 - Dot Hill BV has teamed with Primeur/EnterTheGrid, the premier online news service on Supercomputing and Grid computing in Europe. The Primeur Weekly online news service and the EnterTheGrid portal are both powered by Dot Hill’s SANnet® storage systems.

The EnterTheGrid portal is the largest catalogue of Grid computing related items in the world. It lists all the companies, projects and software available for the Grid computing community. Primeur also offers Primeur Live, a daily virtual magazine on High-Performance Computing and Networking, reporting live from important computer events including the upcoming Global Grid Forum 5 Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland on July 26.

While Primeur/EnterTheGrid partners with all major players in the Grid computing field – hardware and software vendors, network vendors, academia and research institutes – the alliance with Dot Hill is the first with a storage vendor.

“We realized the importance of Grid computing at an early stage and continue to work closely with this community,” said Dana Kammersgard, Dot Hill’s chief technology officer. “In Europe, our support of Linux and participation in HNF events brought our SANnet storage products to the attention of scientists and researchers on Grid projects. CERN in Switzerland and CASPUR in Italy play an active role in these projects, and we’re very pleased to have them as customers.”

According to Primeur Editor in Chief, Ad Emmen, “This alliance signifies the growing importance of storage as an integral part of Grid computing. We began working with Dot Hill after meeting at the HNF Europe Conference at CERN in 2001. The Dot Hill technologists and products were highly regarded by the Grid and Supercomputing community in attendance at the conference.”

Emmen’s need for a high availability storage system to power his online news sites and store the associated databases turned him into a Dot Hill customer. Emmen’s sites are up and running around the clock for subscribers around the world. The Primeur site is mainly fee-based making its availability mission critical to its success.
