Globalstor Demonstrates Distributed Computing Software from Cluster Computing Corporation at NAB

Software Maximizes Workflow, Minimizes Expensive FlexLM Licenses

LAS VEGAS, NV April 19, 2004:

Globalstor Data Corporation, a leading distributor of network storage solutions, and Cluster Computing Corporation, developer of a distributed computing software, announced today that the latest version of ComputePool (v.2.4.0) would be demonstrated on an RAID-based network system during NAB at Globalstor’s hospitality suite in the Las Vegas Hilton, suite #4103.ComputePool will be used to manage video content and data workflow between JMR’s new Fortra® i6 15-Bay 2GB Fibre Channel RAID and Fortra A2 15-Bay 2G Fibre to SATA RAID solutions, creating a virtual storage pool that can be quickly and easily accessed by anyone, anywhere on the network.

Analyst studies show, that even organizations with well-implemented networks and computer structures will typically never use more than 25% of their potential computing power due to off hours, idle time, workflow logistics, inefficiency, and the general complexity of managing system-wide resources manually.ComputePool’s unique clustering package is ideally suited for JMR’s IDE and SATA RAID centralized storage solutions.

“The whole reason organizations invest in a network is to improve workflow and conserve resources,” said Toby Gallo, VP Business Development of Cluster Computing Corporation.“ComputePool allows processing of work to be distributed over multiple computers, in order to utilize all available power 24 hours a day. The net effect in typical installations is a 3x to 5x increase in the amount of work done per hardware dollar spent.”

On the corporate-level, the benefits of integrating ComputePool into an enterprise network are great, including significantly reduced costs for hardware acquisition, administrative personnel, and physical facilities.In addition, ComputePool can also be used to align the use of computing resources with corporate-level priorities by intelligently managing workflow.As a result, high-priority projects receive the majority of the available resources.

“For our clients, the benefit of integrating ComputePool is that their project times are cut resulting in quicker time to market and a higher-quality final product," said Scott Leif, President of Globalstor Data."ComputePool is already deeply integrated with the most popular applications in the Visual Effects, Post-Production, and Graphic Arts industries, and we are pleased to be able to add them to our offering.”

Easy-to-use, ComputePool manages all available computing resources automatically and adeptly handles the complexity of distributing work to dozens, hundreds, even thousands of computers with enterprise-class speed and robustness.

During NAB (April 19th through 22nd, 2004), Globalstor Data and JMR will demonstrate network environments managed for maximum workflow by Computepool at Globalstor’s hospitality suite in the Las Vegas Hilton, room #4103.

Availability and Support
Cluster Computing Corporation’s ComputePool is available for immediate integration into networks based on Windows NT/2000/XP, Linux, Macintosh OS X or SGI/IRIX.
