GigaSpaces Technologies (http://www.gigaspaces.com) today announced that it will exhibit at the 6th Annual Microsoft Financial Services Developer Conference in New York City. Bringing together more than 600 business and technical leaders, the 2008 Microsoft Financial Services Developer Conference will focus on providing developers and architects in financial services with a clear roadmap of the Microsoft development platform with a focus on High Performance Computing (HPC).

At the conference, GigaSpaces will present its high-performance, scalable .Net application server with interoperability between .NET, C++ and Java, and its recently announced Excel-That-Scales solution.

The GigaSpaces solution allows Microsoft Excel users to leverage the power of the data center, as opposed to relying on the power of the local desktop machine on which the spreadsheet runs. Tasks are submitted to a grid of servers directly from the spreadsheet, and results are returned with maximum resiliency, performance and scalability.

Developers and architects who use Windows HPC Server 2008 will have an opportunity to see a preview of GigaSpaces' latest offering, a scalable, low latency solution for Microsoft Excel-based applications running on Windows HPC Server 2008 clusters. The solution enables high volume financial services Excel users to leverage the power of Windows-based grids. Integrating GigaSpaces XAP with Windows HPC Server's scheduling capabilities allows for the routing of each job to the node where the data required to perform that job resides. This "Data Aware Scheduling" functionality ensures the lowest possible latency and maximum scalability.

Demos of Excel-That-Scales and the integration between GigaSpaces, Windows HPC Server 2008 and MS-Excel will be presented at the GigaSpaces booth (BOOTH "G").
