Google buys server software company Peakstream

Google has acquired Peakstream, a California developer of software for multi-core and parallel processors, the company said.

While Google declined to be specific about plans for its newly acquired Peakstream technology, a Google representative confirmed that Peakstream's product line will no longer be commercially available.

The representative said Google believes Peakstream's broad technical expertise can help build products and features to benefit Google users. The future, Google believes, is in the ability to scale high-performance applications that can work on multicore processors.

The search giant declined to disclose terms of the deal,

Peakstream's flagship product, Peakstream Workstation for Microsoft Windows, was released in beta in March. . A version of its product page cached on Google's web site described it as the first commercial software product to allow programming of multi-core and parallel processors, allowing optimisation of these increasingly prevalent chipsets.

The company was founded in 2005 by executives from Sun Microsystems, Nvidia, EMC's VMWare, and Network Appliance. In September 2006 it raised US$17 million in funding.
