MARIMBA ANNOUNCES TIMBALE VERSION 1.2 Wednesday 20 December 2000 PDF Print Timbale's Latest Release Includes a Cache Integration Module, Increased Platform Support, and Improved Functionality Marimba, Inc., a leading provider of Internet infrastructure management solutions, today announced the release of Timbale version 1.2. With this latest release, Marimba introduces a cache module, added platform support, and improved functionality that increases IT productivity and enables customers to deploy content to web servers more rapidly and more efficiently. "We are pleased that Marimba has completed the Cache Integration Module in their latest release of Timbale for Server Management," said Frederic Martin, director of partner marketing at CacheFlow. "The combined offering provides our customers with an end-to-end content management solution that provides for the delivery of the most current content." Cache Integration Module Timbale 1.2 provides a module optimised for CacheFlow servers and appliances for improved Website performance. These cache devices move content to the edge of the Internet and closer to end-users. With this module, customers can integrate and automate the process of updating content and pre-populating the CacheFlow appliance. Content contributors can then publish/distribute content using Marimba's Timbale. And, for example, upon the successful deployment of updated content, Timbale can communicate with the CacheFlow appliance and indicate that a specific URL needs to be updated or removed. In future releases of Timbale, the planned modular architecture will allow Marimba to release additional plug-and-play modules for other caching devices and other infrastructure components. Expanded Platform Support Timbale 1.2 continues to support Windows NT, Window 2000 and Solaris environments. Additionally, the following platforms are supported in the latest release: * RedHat Linux operating system version 6.2 * VA Linux - RedHat 6.2.3 with VA Linux enhancements * AIX 4.2.2 and 4.3.3 With the additional support of these platforms, Timbale 1.2 provides corporations with the ability to deploy and manage applications across leading UNIX, Linux and Windows platforms with a single solution. "Due to Timbale's increased platform and integration module support, it is designed to better meet our customers' server infrastructure management needs," said Rich Wyckoff, senior vice president of worldwide marketing for Marimba. "Timbale is part of our server content distribution and management solution for customers that are deploying widely distributed server farms in remote data centers. We will continue to develop and enhance our products to meet the evolving needs of our customers." Availability Timbale 1.2 is available in December 2000.
