SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 6 - Entelos will integrate Toronto-based Platform Computing's distributed platform software into its PhysioLab disease simulation technology, the companies have announced.
The software, Platform LSF and Platform LSF ActiveCluster, allow Menlo Park, Calif.-based Entelos to manage workloads across its server farms and distribute its desktop processing.
Financial details of the agreement, made public on Wednesday, were not disclosed.
"Platform LSF ActiveCluster was a deciding factor [in the purchase] -- with ActiveCluster we can go beyond traditional distributed computing and expand our processing power by utilizing idle desktops," Alex Bangs, chief technology officer at Entelos, said in a statement. "As we plan to offer this technology to our pharmaceutical partners, this will provide as significant a benefit to them as it will to us."
