Kontiki announced it will team up with IBM to offer companies a way to tap their unused computing resources to deliver rich media, including DVD-quality video and software, to employees and customers with a cost savings over traditional delivery methods. Kontiki will offer customers a solution that incorporates Kontiki’s Delivery Management System (DMS) software running on IBM’s eServer systems. The Kontiki DMS can integrate with IBM’s products including Tivoli software and DB2 Universal Database. The joint solution can allow companies to securely deliver video and software updates in conjunction with existing software distribution systems to all employees, even to remote offices. Kontiki’s DMS is built on the company’s Grid Delivery Technology. Kontiki is also collaborating with IBM to develop a set of standard web service APIs to allow heterogeneous enterprise systems to integrate with grid delivery systems such as the Kontiki DMS. www.kontiki.com
