In unexpected news, The Register informs that Google has purchased PeakStream Inc., a Redwood City, California company that develops software for multi-core and parallel processors. The sum of purchase has not been disclosed as of now.

Google has already confirmed the acquisition but nothing is known about the terms of the deal.

After the news broke out, Peakstream's Web site has since been out of commission. A small version of its product page cached version is available on Google's Web site.

“The PeakStream Platform is the first commercially available software application platform that makes it easy to program new high performance, multi-core and parallel processors, and convert them into radically powerful computing engines for computationally intense applications. Available in Linux and Windows, the PeakStream Platform is offered in two product editions – a Workstation Edition licensed for individual use in a desktop environment, and a Server Edition licensed for multi-user access in a “computing cluster” environment.”

PeakStream Inc., was founded in 2005 by executives from Sun Microsystems Inc., Nvidia Corp., EMC Corp.'s VMWare, and Network Appliance Inc.
