Oracle has joined the Enterprise Grid Alliance (EGA), a consortium created to develop enterprise grid solutions and accelerate the deployment of grid computing.
The firm promised that, through its involvement with the EGA, it would help develop interoperable systems, bringing together the many pieces of the enterprise grid computing puzzle.
Other EGA members include EMC, Fujitsu-Siemens, HP, NEC, Network Appliance and Sun Microsystems.
The group aims to be an open, independent and vendor-neutral community addressing the near-term requirements for deploying commercial applications in a grid environment.
Initial focus areas include reference models, provisioning, security and accounting.
"Although grid computing is already well established in the academic, research and technical sectors, it has yet to gain significant traction throughout the enterprise," said Donald Deutsch, president of the EGA and vice president of standards strategy and architecture at Oracle, in a statement.
"In close coordination, the members of the EGA will create open, interoperable enterprise grid computing solutions and increase the adoption of enterprise grid computing."
