Some user quotes


  • After contacting ActiveEon, we quickly learned that their skills and expertise were exactly what we needed. Their commitment and dedication to the job are exceptional, and despite being thousands of miles away, were able to quickly get us up and running with parallel computing using their easy-to-learn Java-based control and management software. We are now running large oceanographic simulations in a quarter of the time on our distributed network.

    Mahalo ProActive.

    Christopher Goody, SeaEngineering, USA

  • Microsoft’s strong partnership with ActiveEon is perfectly in line with the Microsoft strategy of collaboration and openness in the Cloud for our worldwide customers. The Windows strength plus the interoperability and the Open Source with Linux (e.g. Suse) in mixed environments are a key objective for us. ActiveEon’s advanced technology perfectly fits that objective. Advanced services such as workflow orchestration directly in the Cloud and open APIs allowing PaaS mode, perfectly complete the Windows Azure offers.

    Frederic Aatz, Director of Interoperability at Microsoft France.

  • With the adoption of ProActive as a computational grid for all its sites, IFP Energies nouvelles enters in the era of Cloud Computing. We are going to cut on our hardware and software costs, to strengthen our business workflows, to use these globalized resources directly in our business software in order to accelerate them.

    Frédéric Gauluet, Engineer at IFP Energies nouvelles

  • The ProActive product fits perfectly into a hybrid architecture multiplatform. By using standard protocols, the product is able to interoperate with an LDAP directory or Active Directory. ActiveEon’s guidance and support are very efficient with a performance requirement that surpasses by far its competitors. The use of ProActive allowed us to have a commomplace approach to the treatment of our infrastructure that includes the OS Linux, Windows and GPU processors. With this product we have reduced our human operating costs by a factor of 10. Thanks to ProActive, we plan to treat 500 terrabytes/year within 2 years, and to permit the pre-industrial demonstrator MetaGenoPolis, funded by the “Grand Emprunt” (Big Loan) and led by INRA, to be a leading European player in the analysis of metagenomic samples.

  • ProActive’s Workflow studio permits rapid implementation starting from a generic workflow taking into count all exterior constraints. Automated by the workflow, the transfer of the data to be treated is automatic (data-aware scheduling). With this product, we will be able to respond to the needs of these clients in a constantly changing technical environment. The support in the implementation of ProActive usage and the great help from the developers are completely up to our expectations.

    Frédéric Bertin, project leader of the Médiamétrie R&D department

  • This partnership with ActiveEon is perfectly consistent with our strategy at AS+ Groupe EOLEN to bring to our customers from domains such as Engineering, Telco, Media, Finance, a comprehensive solution with services to manage their workflows and optimizing their infrastructure. Workflow orchestration and meta-scheduling capabilities provided by ProActive as well as the quality of support offered by ActiveEon are one of our key strengths to bring this ambition to reality for our demanding customers.

    Sébastien Monot, Innovation Manager at AS+ Groupe EOLEN
  • Very good solution with all the needed features provided. You can trade expensive licenses for a lower fee subscription. ActiveEon is a truly professional open source company.

    Anthony Duperray, Oracle

  • I’ve found in ProActive all the features I was looking for, for so many years, in one simple, comprehensive & easy to use framework. What a great team and such a fantastic job achieved.

    Please, keep on being so innovative.

    Xavier Lefumeux, HP
