BROOMFIELD, Colo., June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- OpenLogic, Inc., a leading
provider of software, stacks and support that enable enterprises to easily
deploy and manage customized open source environments, today announced the
launch of OpenLogic Enterprise 4.0, the first enterprise-wide solution
providing a platform that empowers enterprises to manage, deploy, track and
maintain a broad library of open source solutions.
Enterprise Control and Tracking of Open Source Software
OpenLogic Enterprise 4.0, formerly known as BlueGlue, uses a new
distributed enterprise architecture, which allows enterprises to control
the use of open source across the enterprise. OpenLogic Enterprise 4.0
gives enterprises a central repository of approved, certified open source
products within the corporate firewall; enables companies to automatically
install, configure and integrate this software on remote servers and
desktops (using existing software deployment tools if they choose) and
provides an audit trail of open source software deployment.
As with past versions, OpenLogic Enterprise 4.0 allows enterprises to
control which open source products are included in the approved library,
and can limit usage on various criteria including license type.
More Certified Open Source Products
OpenLogic Enterprise 4.0 includes 18 new OpenLogic certified open
source products including Geronimo, Apache Axis, POI and JLDAP. This brings
OpenLogic's library to more than 160 pre-certified open source software
packages, including the most popular open source databases, applications
servers, IDEs and more. OpenLogic's platform is flexible and extensible,
enabling companies to build customized stacks by adding their own open
source products, as well as commercial and proprietary software.
Side-by-side Version Installation
OpenLogic has added a side-by-side install capability, to allow users
to install multiple versions of the same open source product on the same
computer. This can help users to compare versions of open source packages
and manage migrations to new releases.
Ongoing Open Source Maintenance through Certified Updates
With OpenLogic Enterprise 4.0, OpenLogic expands its OpenUpdate
maintenance capabilities to allow frequent, incremental updates to an
enterprise's certified open source library. OpenLogic evaluates and
certifies patches and new software releases for its entire library of open
source solutions and provides one-click access through OpenLogic Enterprise
4.0. Unlike fixed stack providers, the OpenLogic Enterprise technology
enables customers to go beyond a limited, standard stack by configuring
custom stacks that mix certified open source with commercial and
Consolidated Open Source Enterprise Support/OpenLogic Expert Community
OpenLogic offers enterprise support for more than 160 certified open
source products - providing a single point of contact for enterprise open
source issues. OpenLogic handles tier 1 and tier 2 support, while tapping
the open source development community through the OpenLogic Expert
Community for help in resolving more complex issues. OpenLogic shepherds
enterprise issues through the entire process to resolution, providing
enterprises with the commercial-grade service levels they require.
"Even though many of our largest enterprise customers have continued to
increase their use of open source software, they have also been telling us
that controlling the use of hundreds of open source solutions is a time and
labor intensive process," said Steven Grandchamp, CEO of OpenLogic. "We
have created OpenLogic Enterprise 4.0 to address many of the challenges
unique to managing open source solutions."
OpenLogic is a leading provider of software, stacks and support that
