LA JOLLA, CA — July 06, 2005 – Caucho® Technology, Inc., a Sun Microsystems J2EE licensee, announced today that Knovel Corporation (www.knovel.com) has chosen Resin as a fast and reliable solution for serving their Web pages.
Knovel brings essential science and technology reference data to life in a virtual technical library that solves problems for engineers, applied scientists and librarians worldwide. Knovel’s mission is to provide efficient access and analysis to information essential for the work of scientists and engineers.
Using Knovel, researchers can analyze and reorganize data from over 700 full-text engineering and scientific reference works, handbooks, and databases on a uniquely powerful research platform. An intuitive yet powerful search engine integrated with a user-friendly browse capability allows the user to discover data in ways close to their real information seeking behavior.
In addition to finding full-text information, users can sort, filter and export data from ‘live tables’, resolve equations and plot graphs, capture values from existing graphs and perform ‘what if’ experiments on the data.
Chanan Braunstein, Web Development Manager for Knovel Corporation said, “At Knovel, we’re always looking for ways that we can make finding and analyzing information for engineers, scientists and librarians faster and easier.” Braunstein continued, “We chose Resin application server software because we wanted the fastest and most reliable implementation possible to power the delivery of more than 700 high-quality scientific and engineering references to our worldwide clients.”
