Hash: SHA1

Is Ingres leading an open source 'apps stack'?

,----[ Quote
| With the announcement of an ECM appliance barely a year after its declaration 
| of an integrated business intelligence (BI) solution, open source database 
| vendor Ingres appears to be creating, through partnerships, an 
| alternative 'one-stop shop' for enterprise applications. While the likes of 
| IBM and Oracle may not have to worry yet, given these cost-conscious times, 
| Microsoft - whose price-point is closest to open source - and smaller ISVs 
| need to take note.

| their being seated together.

| platform, hoping the combination will prove to be an enticing alternative to
| Microsoft SharePoint.
| The two vendors have already bundled their products but decided to go a step
| further with the appliance, which adds a Linux operating system and can be
| installed on commodity hardware, said Deb Woods, vice president of product
| management at Ingres.

| open source database with improved reliability and ease of administration.
| Release 9.2 was made available Nov. 18 for free download from the company's
| download site. Upgrading from previous releases is a simplified and automated
| task that doesn't require reloading the data in the system, Ingres CEO Roger
| Burkhardt said. The release is being offered about a year after the

Ingres Breaks the Ice With BI Appliance

,----[ Quote ]

| database integrated with Linux business intelligence software from open 
| source-based JasperSoft, and Linux-enabling technology from application 
| builder rPath.   


Ingres Attempts to Break up Database Market with Icebreaker

,----[ Quote ]
| Question: Why did Ingres go with rPath's Linux distribution?
| Lyman: This seems to be a case where rPath made sense because of
| its experience in providing a lean Linux suited for integration
| with other software to make an appliance. rPath specializes in
| purpose-built versions of Linux for appliances, and VMware also
| offers an appliance that is a combination of rPath Linux and
| SugarCRM, for instance.

| open-source database with a version of Linux from rPath.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
