Posted by Rajkumar Buyya in Cloud Computing, Manjrasoft News.


Dear All:

On behalf of Manjrasoft, I am pleased to share details on the release
its product:
Aneka: A Software Technology to Simplify .NET-based Enterprise Clouds

This can be used for (1) building enterprise Clouds/Grids in
Windows/.NET environments, (2) constructing applications using one of
the supported  programming models – Threads, Tasks, or MapReduce – run
them, and (3) speed up execution of applications in Windows/.NET Clouds.

You can either use “dedicated” network of computers or harness exiting
network of desktop computers to build enterprise Clouds. In addition to
SDK for building application, we also provide GUI-based Design explorer
for creating parameter sweep application rapidly for execution on
enterprise Clouds. More details can be found in release notes enclosed

A trial version of Aneka software and documents can be downloaded from:
