Lifeboat Distribution services an extensive network of international solution providers, VARs, systems integrators, consultants and application developers worldwide. Lifeboat will offer Acumem solutions to its global network of over 7,000 resellers.
"We're pleased to add Acumem's multi-core tools to our portfolio," said Dan Jamieson, vice president and general manager of Lifeboat Distribution. "Our application lifecycle solution providers can derive business advantage for themselves and deliver great value to their end-customers -- helping them maximize their multi-core processor investments through improved multi-threaded performance for their enterprise and database applications."
Acumem's technology enables owners of systems and applications to get the best performance from their system or application in a multi-core environment. Acumem does this by allowing programmers to optimize their own -- or others' -- code for the multi-core paradigm shift. The target users of the tools are programmers, both optimization experts and non-expert, whereas the customers and people benefitting from the results are also found among system owners, development managers, performance evaluators, benchmarks teams, etc. Through the identification of SlowSpots, Acumem's tools help programmers to go directly to the parts of the code where improvement potential exists without any need to go through thousands of lines of code and vast amounts of data. Acumem SlowSpotter has proven to increase throughput in many applications by a factor of five, improving general scalability, saving processor cycles and decreasing power consumption.
Acumem SlowSpotter Pro is the Expert version of Acumem SlowSpotter. It mainly targets programmers with expert knowledge in performance optimization and gives more options in the data capture part, allows for an unlimited number of threads to be analyzed and also advises on more complex code changes than Acumem SlowSpotter. Just as Acumem SlowSpotter, the Pro version gives hands-on advice based on analysis of cache and bandwidth related performance problems for single- and multi-core systems.
"Lifeboat Distribution's experience in distributing and reselling technical software tools fits very well into our strategy to get the most efficient distribution," said Mats Hovmoller, CEO at Acumem. "We already have resellers wanting to use Lifeboat as their distribution source and it is of high value to Acumem to take advantage of Lifeboat's extensive network to reach a wider range of multi-core programmers globally."
Acumem is a provider of intelligent software which analyzes and optimizes application software performance in single- and multi-core environments.
