SoftDevices Smart Process Management Platform now on Playstation 3

January 2008 SoftDevices released its Smart Process Management Platform Extension to support the Sony Playstation 3 with Yellow Dog Linux.

To support high computing agents for automated calculations as part of enterprise business processes, SoftDevices has ported the RADAR communication platform and Digital Employees® to the Playstation 3. Early benchmarks and integration tests show a dramatic performance increase when using all 6 available cell processors for integer/floating point vector calculations over any available Intel or AMD Processor.

While this integration is not meant for everyone, large computing intensive applications, like the Power Assure Cell DDM Engine for power demand forecasting, can now benefit from the additional calculation power of the Sony Playstation 3 and equivalent IBM Cell Processor based Blade Servers directly from within the process models.

SoftDevices spins out its data center products to Power Assure, Inc.

June 2007 SoftDevices together with Donnie K. Foster and William R. Yeack launched Power Assure, Inc. a new company focused on power management in Data Centers.

All intellectual property related to data center management, NOC automation, inventory management and out-of-band management has been transferred to Power Assure as part of the incorporation.

Power Assure is focused on efficiently reducing power consumption in data centers by up to 80 percent while improving service levels through automatic load shifting and load shedding.

Power Assure will use the SoftDevices Smart Process Automation Platform to run its Holistic Power Management Services.
