London, UK, 3rd April 2006 â Paremus, an innovator in distributed enterprise computing, today announced the availability of the Infiniflowâ¢ 2.1 Enterprise Service Fabric (ESF). An integrated, distributed Java application server, Infiniflow offers enterprise applications a unique combination of performance, high availability and unparalleled application agility at a much lower cost and improved flexibility than can be achieved by using conventional enterprise middleware.
âInfiniflow allows users to easily develop and deploy a wide range of applications on a resilient, enterprise-wide utility grid built from commodity hardware,â said Gary Ebersole, CEO of Paremus. âInfiniflow brings the benefits of grid computing to the whole enterprise, not just a limited set of computationally-intensive applications.â
The Infiniflow 2.1 release includes enhancements that enable the Infiniflow runtime environment to dynamically adapt to changing business requirements. These include:
* A fabric scheduler service allowing the submission or termination of fabric-hosted composite applications based on calendar or environment trigger events.
* A flexible host scheduling service that enables resource groups to respond to a variety of fabric-hosted resource requirements based upon calendar and ownership policies.
* A dynamic enterprise compute resource marketplace allowing for the dynamic allocation of resource to fabric-hosted composite applications based upon flexible requirements, capability matching and Service Level Agreements.
* Dynamic resource prioritization across a number of fabric-hosted composite applications, enabling the fabric to respond in real-time to changing application mixes and priority levels.
* Audit and roles-based security, including integration to corporate LDAP services.
* Advanced process network recursion and callback breakdown behaviors, allowing dynamic recursion within complex computation-bound compute environments.
* Adaptive multi-threading and queuing mechanisms per user application.
In addition to the fabric enhancements, Infiniflow 2.1 includes a fully integrated Management GUI with improved fabric configuration, process network control and run-time monitoring.
âBusinesses striving for enterprise data center virtualization want to decouple business processing workflows from particular hardware,â said Dr. Richard Nicholson, Paremus CTO and co-founder. âWith its dynamic, distributed enterprise resource market and self-healing behaviours, Infiniflow 2.1 is the ideal platform for hosting a new generation of virtualized business services.â
