rPath is rolling out its rBuilder platform for building Linux software appliances. Software appliances give customers the benefit of the application without the hassles of integration and operating system maintenance--the hallmark of Software as a Service (SaaS). rBuilder transforms Linux from being just another port for app developers to being a strategic element of a subscription business model, according to the company.
"rBuilder provides a platform that allows application developers to control their operating environment, eliminating the expensive engineering cycles associated with multi-platform support," says Erik Troan, rPath founder and CTO.
