SaaS Rapid Release Cycles Drive Virtualization Demand - No Surprise LinuxWorld Launches New Virtualization Track

Jul 16, 2007, 01:00 ET from Replicate Technologies

    PALO ALTO, Calif., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Gone are the days of annual
 release cycle. Software companies need to operate with rapid releases while
 maintaining high quality and tight integration. For Software as a Service
 (SaaS) companies, weekly releases are the new standard. Virtualization
 helps SaaS companies deploy their software faster and more flexibly. At the
 same time, it promises faster and simpler delivery of on-premise software,
 competing with SaaS. Ken Novak, CEO of Replicate Technology, is honored to
 speak about these emerging trends at LinuxWorld in San Francisco Aug 7-9,
     LinuxWorld is the premier event for the Linux and open source
 community, bringing together industry leaders shaping the future of new
 enterprise technology in the largest single gathering of business and
 technical leaders deploying Linux and open source solutions. For the full
