Press Release

Digital Boiler finds with VIFIB its first commercial application to run mission critical ERP and CRM applications on the Cloud based on open source ERP5.

Paris, Grenoble, May 21st. Stimergy - inventor of the digital boiler - and VIFIB - inventor of decentralized cloud computing - jointly announce a technology agreement that will increase Cloud Computing resiliency and reduce its CO2 footprint. Under this agreement, VIFIB will use Stimergy servers to power its cloud computing services. Stimergy will use VIFIB open source technologies to accelerate its development.

Dr. Jean-Paul SMETS, CEO of VIFIB, announces "the Stimergy Digital Boiler is a very reliable server for mission critical applications such as ERP or CRM. In order to reach zero CO2 emissions. Stimergy turns the heat produced by Cloud Computing into hot water for households, in winter as well as in summer. And with kadeploy remote maintenance technology, it is easy to deploy SlapOS system images on Stimergy servers."

Christophe PERRON, CEO of Stimergy, adds: "VIFIB has developped since 2010 SlapOS open source technology for Cloud Computing. SlapOS has become a mature platform that can accelerate the implementation of a resilient and decentralized cloud computing infrastructure. Stimergy will leverage SlapOS components to implement its own software platform and contribute to common research and development."

Christophe Cérin, Professor at Paris 13 University, concludes "Both VIFIB and Stimergy are brainchilds of Grid5000, the largest grid computing infrastructure worldwide. Initial integration of kadeploy and SlapOS is very promising. We hope to see it in production for a large project in 2014."
