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

"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
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
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,
the successful deployment of updated content, Timbale can communicate with
the CacheFlow appliance and indicate that a specific URL needs to be
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
Marimba. "Timbale is part of our server content distribution and
solution for customers that are deploying widely distributed server farms
remote data centers. We will continue to develop and enhance our products
to meet the evolving needs of our customers."
