Equalis Launches First Math in the Cloud Solution Powered by Scilab

First public solution to demonstrate the benefits of deploying open source numerical computing in the cloud

San Jose, CA – December 7th, 2010 – Equalis, the innovative on-line destination for the mathematics community, today announced that it has launched Math in the Cloud, the first public solution to demonstrate the benefits of deploying numerical computing in the cloud. Through this free application, available at www.mathinthecloud.com, students, researchers, and professionals can take advantage of the power of Scilab, the world’s most popular open source numerical computation platform, without installing or maintaining any software or hardware. In order to deliver this cloud-based solution, Equalis leveraged its on-line community and the open source contributions of W3 Scilab, developed by R. Sathish Kumar during his tenure at the National Resource Centre for Free/Open Source Software (NRCFOSS).

Equalis is driving the most vibrant and far reaching on-line math-centric community. It enables the free flow of ideas, cutting-edge research, open source technology, problem solving, and job opportunities for individuals and organizations with a common interest in math and math-centric endeavors. Equalis has a close partnership with Scilab, having joined the Scilab Consortium, and hosts a thriving community of Scilab users, including a dedicated user group and forum.

“Numerical analysis is a key component of the product development process, and Equalis is bringing this capability to the masses with their Math in the Cloud solution,” said John MacKrell, Vice President, CIMdata. “This new service adds another development tool for users, scaling from the desktop, to servers, to the cloud.”

“With the introduction of Math in the Cloud we are demonstrating that technical applications can benefit from the low cost and high scalability of cloud-centric deployments,” said Carmine Napolitano, CEO and President, Equalis. “This initiative is yet another step in our mission to lower the cost of innovation for our community.”

“Without the open source ecosystem that Equalis and Scilab provide, we could have never developed W3 Scilab and deployed Math in the Cloud,” said R. Sathish Kumar, the main software contributor for W3 Scilab. “This project serves as another example of how the extended community can come together to solve an emerging problem.”
