New York-based peer-to-peer computing firm DataSynapse is partnering with IT consultantancy PCIB in an effort to tap the German banking market.
DataSynapse says its GridServer technology - which harnesses the power of idle computers for process-intensive number-crunching chores - is currently being evaluated at a number of premier German financial institutions with the support of PCIB.
Under the reseller agreement, the two firms are committed to additional joint sales, marketing, and technical initiatives to deploy their combined solutions at other German companies.
PCIB consultants have been trained through the GridServer Certification Program on the installation and deployment of DataSynapse technology.
Peter Lee, CEO of DataSynapse says: "Based on the strong reception of German clients to the DataSynapse value proposition, we have reinforced our commitment to serving these clients' needs by investing in additional local resources. We expect significant growth in the German grid computing market over the next several years."
