rPath™ Reaches One Million Appliance Downloads

News

Led by sites like VMware Virtual Appliance Marketplace,
more than 50% of downloads are virtual appliances

Raleigh, NC (July 31, 2007) – rPath™, provider of the first platform for creating and maintaining software and virtual appliances, today announced its one millionth software appliance download. Sources of the one million downloads of rPath-based appliances include rBuilder Online, as well as partner sites such as VMware’s Virtual Appliance Marketplace (VAM). Reflecting the explosive growth in virtualization use, over 50% of the downloads were in virtual appliance format.

Software appliances represent an opportunity for ISVs to streamline and simplify software distribution and management. With an appliance, software vendors can ship thoroughly tested, standard configurations that require minimal installation effort, making them more accessible to potential buyers. Simple software is easier to sell, enabling the ISV to enter markets and open channels of distribution that were previously unavailable to them.

“Our momentum over the past year reflects both the value of the software appliance model and the technical superiority of the rPath solution,” stated Billy Marshall, CEO of rPath. “rPath provides a platform and process that enables application companies to expand into new markets, open new channels of distribution and reduce their development costs.”

While GNOME 3.22 Beta was announced on August 22, it appears that the maintainers of certain core packages needed a little more time to work on various improvements and polish their applications before they were suitable for public testing. And this is the case of GNOME Control Center, which was recently updated to version 3.21.90, which means 3.22 Beta. Read more
