TurboWorx Product Suite
The TurboWorx product suite, built on an open development environment, consists of TurboWorx Builder, TurboWorx Group, TurboWorx Enterprise, and TurboWorx ClusterManager. The technology framework supports IBM AIX, Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, Unix, and Solaris. Because it is designed for heterogeneous infrastructures, the framework facilitates collaboration across multiple organizations, without the requirement that participants utilize the same operating system. TurboWorx Builder is a development environment in which components and workflows can be created, saved, tested, and imported/exported to other Builder environments. TurboWorx Group is a single-user distributed computing solution for running more demanding workflows. TurboWorx Group is limited to at most five worker machines, all of which must run the same operating system. Components and data are shared using the OS file system. TurboWorx Enterprise is the deployment of TurboWorx technology that allows users to run very complex and difficult workflows by distributing the computations across large heterogeneous computing environments. Multiple users can collaborate by sharing components and data using a Web Services framework. TurboWorx ClusterManager is a distributed resource management platform for Linux clusters that enhances application performance by improving resource scheduling and utilization. With a Web-based interface that includes sophisticated monitoring and reporting tools, ClusterManager enables users of the TurboWorx product suite to dynamically allocate and manage resources in response to changing business goals and objectives.
