The Future of Computing Gets 'eXtreme'
As computing undergoes profound changes, Microsoft's new eXtreme Computing Group stands poised to funnel cutting-edge ideas from Microsoft Research into products developed across the company.
REDMOND, Wash. – Oct. 13, 2009 – Computing in the 21st century is experiencing a profound transformation. The increasing use of multicore chips and the move to huge facilities hosting data in the cloud have created an environment in which bold new approaches are needed, say thought leaders at Microsoft.
Enter Microsoft's new eXtreme Computing Group (XCG).
"This is the only place on the planet where one can tackle these problems at this scale," Reed says. "The whole goal for the XCG is to position Microsoft to do things that no one else on the planet can do."
