Ingres virtual appliances simplified


A Suse Studio appliance template is now available for the Ingres database, making it easier for vendors to package Ingres as part of a software appliance.

Co-operation between Novell and Ingres means Suse Studio Online can be used to build software appliances that incorporate the Ingres database.

"We've long been believers in the value of software appliances and our early users reported dramatic reductions in effort and increases in speed to market," said Ingres chief executive Roger Burkhardt.

"We look forward to working with the many ISVs who will boost profit margins, reduce setup costs and drive down the cost of support as a result of our joint efforts," he added.

There is growing interest in software appliances among vendors and customers. It provides a known environment, reducing the support complexity for vendors. Customers benefit from quicker and easier installation.

"By leveraging the Suse Studio appliance build tool and go-to-market support offered by the Suse Appliance Program, Ingres has a unique opportunity to expand its market reach and increase revenue," said Markus Rex, senior vice-president and general manager of open platform solutions at Novell.

"Ingres has taken this opportunity one step further by integrating its database technology with Suse Studio and making it easier for SIs and ISVs who need an enterprise class database to build an Ingres based software appliance within Suse Studio," he added.
