The Univa Story
Univa partnered with Sun Microsystems in 2007 to co-design technologies that would simplify the deployment and management of Grid Engine clusters. Univa developed software to meet Sun’s HPC go-to-market requirements and became a reseller of Sun Grid Engine.
In January 2011, Univa invested in the people who designed and developed Grid Engine, established Univa GmbH and refactored the company around this group of core developers. This provided the means by which they could continue to evolve and advance Grid Engine, something they had done for over 10 years. Univa understood that more than 97 percent of the Grid Engine code had been written by salaried developers, many of whom joined us in 2011. This move allowed Univa to better support Grid Engine users and our customers.
Since this beginning, we have delivered more code to the community than any third party outside of Sun with the release of Univa Grid Engine 8.0. We fixed hundreds of issues and shipped 3 new Grid Engine major releases and more than 10 minor releases and updates, something that Sun and Oracle had not been done for more than 2 years.
Today, Univa is evolving Grid Engine at an accelerating pace to meet the increasing demands of our rapidly growing customer base. In 2012 Univa will release more new functionality than Grid Engine users have seen in a decade. Along with many new features we will introduce Univa License Orchestrator a new product that significantly expands the value and lowers TCO of using Univa Grid Engine.
