Microsoft Buys Interactive Supercomputing
Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) confirmed yesterday on its Windows Server Division Weblog that the company has purchased the technology assets of Interactive Supercomuting (ISC), a Waltham, MA, developer of parallel computing software. Financial details of the acquisition weren’t revealed.
The Microsoft blog says that ISC’s CEO, Bill Blake, and his firm’s technical experts are moving into the company’s New England Research & Development Center in Cambridge, MA.
