Microsoft Excel Accelerator Using Linux Cluster/Grid
There is a strange program from Aspeed called Accelerant that can increase the speed of Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet application using Linux based Cluster /Grid.
Does this software really works?
Is there any independent benchmark of this program?
Is it possible to use the optimizer on other Microsoft applications?
Is there any other similar Dual/Quad core optimizer program?
From FAQ on their website:
"We already use a SOA approach to applications, where does ASPEED fit?
ASPEED is simply a SOA performance expansion. It enables you to easily run applications with parallelized components as part of the application architecture. For example an Excel program can actually be doing its parallelized calculations on a Linux cluster or grid. The same calculations can also be used by runs submitted as batch runs directly to the Linux cluster."
