Aduva OnStage Making Big Linux Strides

Revenues Mirror Linux Growth

"Our firm has been experiencing strong, steady growth with each successive quarter. Linux is making significant strides within large enterprises and we're pleased that Aduva is one of the major players powering this expansion," said Zev Laderman, CEO of the leading provider of system software management solutions for distributed and mainframe-based Linux environments, as he announced today first-quarter sales revenue in excess of one million dollars.

The company's Linux deployment and production support software is being deployed on well over 20,000 servers and Aduva supports an estimated 20% market share for new workloads on the IBM zSeries.

Fortune 500 corporations across diverse industries including energy, banking, government, retail and one of the world's largest package-delivery companies have adopted Aduva OnStage. In the first quarter of 2005, Aduva closed contracts with three Fortune 200 companies and additional Global 2000 companies in Europe and the US.

"As Linux continues to proliferate and ultimately becomes the platform of choice for mission critical applications, enterprises will require the level of security, availability, and standards compliance made possible by Aduva OnStage. Bottom line: companies deploying Linux projects, from 'proof of concept' all the way through production, have come to rely on Aduva OnStage as the catalyst for quick, cost effective and virtually risk free roll-outs," Laderman added.

Commenting on Aduva's recent success with Fortune 500 companies, Laderman commented, "By helping our customers accelerate Linux project implementations and reduce associated risk, we witnessed a rapid expansion of our customer base in 2004. Reflecting on our first-quarter results, I am pleased to report that this trend continues in 2005."

Aduva is aggressively pursuing 'go-to-market' partnerships with key software/service providers. These partnerships enable Aduva's customers to easily extend their current Linux systems management capabilities and further capture the Linux promise with confidence, Laderman said.

Aduva's long-standing partnership with IBM was recently expanded to include support for IBM eServer Application Advantage for Linux (Chiphopper). Chiphopper enables customers to easily port and rehost x86-based Linux applications onto POWER or zSeries platforms running Linux and IBM middleware such as WebSphere and DB2. To support this capability, the IBM / Aduva alliance team ported OnStage to the eServer OpenPower platform in record time.

Moving forward, Aduva plans to expand its partner role to include support for IBM's Autonomic Computing and Grid Ecosystem offerings.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
