Other highlights for the February newsletter include: * EMC's acquisition of Acxiom sparked commercial interest in Grid for data management issues. Univa ( CTO, Steve Tuecke explains. * A technical leader in the open source virtualization community -- XenSource ( CTO, Simon Crosby -- highlights synergies / differences between Grid and virtualization. * The first GCJ podcast turns the spotlight on OGSA-DAI (data access and integration services), with an insider's view on its application to commercial data management issues, and its work to reconcile relational data in enterprise Grids. * Carl Kesselman explains the duality between data and computing, and warns against the "false dichotomy" between data Grids and compute Grids. * The Globus Consortium Journal gives the new book "Grid Computing for Developers" a read and reports back to the Grid community.
