|"Base One is emerging as a company offering a pragmatic, scalable, and extensible approach to the concept of resource
sharing... It has developed a flexible, modular approach that can be adapted to fit users’ evolving needs. At the same time, the company supports a host of different databases and computing platforms, so concerns or issues around customer technology preferences are inherently
We found Base One’s story straightforward and broadly applicable to heavily compute-oriented and database-intensive workloads. In addition, the Base One solution is relatively mature and vetted with some very demanding users. For those reasons, we have chosen to spotlight the company in this first of a series of documents focusing on grid and virtualization
|"IDC believes that many industries beyond just financial services and science will recognize services within their organization that would benefit from grids. Data mining, real-time business analytics, and supply chain management workloads, among others, will likely emerge as "grid applications," opening the door for grids with other, more traditional commercial workloads and industries."
