Jamcracker saves money with Linux

Filed under
Linux

Established in 1999, Jamcracker has built its success around managed services that allowed its customers to consume applications like a utility. Since then, Jamcracker has become the pioneer in the ASP Aggregator space, supporting businesses in the financial services, high tech, and government sectors, among others.

Jamcracker's original Managed Services application was strictly an in-house implementation that supported the company's Managed Services offering. While much of that service incorporated Jamcracker code, it also utilized the services of a wide variety of third-party products, making it a complex solution that required a Solaris operating system running on SUN servers.

During its development of Pivot Path, Jamcracker designed its new software product to run on Intel-based servers and the Linux OS. Jamcracker quickly found that if the Novell/IBM solution could keep up with the power requirements necessary to support Pivot Path's architecture, and yet could reduce expenses enough to market Pivot Path affordably, the company itself could leverage those advantages in-house as well.
