    BOSTON, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading content management infrastructure
 provider Presence Online today announced its support for IBM's new eServer
 zSeries offering for Linux, giving Aptrix Multi-Platform customers greater
 scalability opportunities.
     The award-winning web content management system, Aptrix Multi-Platform
 Java Platform Edition (Aptrix JPE) embraces open standards such as Java and
 Linux, already supporting IBM's WebSphere software platform and its
 extensions.
     The new IBM eServer zSeries data transaction server provides stability and
 security for content heavy, transactional Aptrix JPE-powered websites.  The
 open, flexible zSeries platform allows customers running JPE on Linux to
 access legacy applications running on similar large mainframe environments.
     "Increasing demands for scalability, reliability, lower price, and
 enhanced application speed are driving constant expansion of Linux among large
 organisations," says Presence Online Director Tim Birdsall.  "JPE 2.1 delivers
 enterprise scalability, boasting enhanced features around content
 distribution, personalization, security and administration, so customers can
 leverage an all-encompassing world-class solution."
     Joann Duguid, Director Linux Marketing zSeries welcomed Presence Online's
 support. "Linux on IBM mainframes allows many disparate systems to be combined
 under one platform, facilitating superior data management and performance.
 Aptrix customers can now rely on this environment to grow and expand their web
 applications more easily, saving costs and reducing time to market."
