The creators of Globus open source grid software have set up a software and services company, Univa, to capitalise on their work on grid computing.

The premier product line for the company is based on the Globus Toolkit., which already serves as one of the primary building blocks for a number of commercial grid products.

It is also used in academic supercomputing projects, including the TeraGrid, which links thousands of computers at several US university supercomputing sites.

The aim of the Globus Toolkit technology is to allow users to securely share computational power, databases and tools online across networks worldwide while maintaining local control.

The first products offered by Univa are expected to hit the market in 2005 and will be enhanced versions of the Globus software for enterprise customers based on Globus Toolkit release 4, according to chief operating officer Rich Miller.
