March 10, 2003 -- Sunnyvale, Calif. - Axceleon, leaders in computational grid software, announced today that it is offering special pricing to the academic community.

Axceleon's EnFuzion software utilizes the combined power of networked computers to significantly reduce application execution time. EnFuzion allows research departments to run multiple sets of input data across their grid or network to achieve results much faster and with greater accuracy. EnFuzion works with Windows, Linux and Unix based operating systems, and utilizes all available computing hardware, including idle desktops, dedicated servers, rack mounted servers and blade servers.

"EnFuzion is very popular in the educational arena," said Michael Duffy, President and CEO at Axceleon. "Axceleon's educational outreach program gives academic institutions the ability to gain access to one of the most comprehensive grid computing solutions available, allowing students and faculty the ability to stay current with leading technologies such as EnFuzion."

EnFuzion has been a popular choice for many years with Universities and research institutions. Several Universities are currently using EnFuzion to address a variety of their clustering needs, including Monash University, Yale University, Griffith University, and University of Chile.

"Axceleon is proud to be offering educational institutions our industry leading grid technology," said Robert Graziotto, Vice President at Axceleon. "Academia plays a key role in developing the worlds future leaders. It is important that they get early access to advanced technologies like EnFuzion.
