"ActiveGrid is a new open source software company that hopes to capitalize on an idea it calls "commercial open source." It has already convinced a couple of venture capitalists to front $3 million to develop a tool called the Grid Application Server.

ActiveGrid CEO and founder Peter Yared says that his product, based on open source LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl, Python, PHP) technology, will make it possible for a small company to build "massively scaled" applications. He says ActiveGrid will "productize" the methods already in use by companies such as Google or the Sabre travel reservation system, something no other company has done before."
