NETLEDGER SELECTS MARIMBA'S SERVER MANAGEMENT SOLUTION TO MANAGE APPLICATIONS AND CONTENT OVER THE INTERNET Thursday 8 February 2001 PDF Print ASP to Reduce Time and Resources with Timbale for Server Management Marimba, Inc., a leading provider of Internet infrastructure management solutions, today announced that NetLedger, Inc. will incorporate Marimba's server management software solution into its product release and rollout processes. As a leading Application Service Provider (ASP), NetLedger will rely on Timbale for Server Management to manage, update and distribute content used in their customer's applications. Marimba's server management software package addresses the unique management challenges inherent in server-based computing. Timbale presents IT departments and ASPs with an Internet-based software infrastructure from which they can control how, when and where rapidly changing server content and applications are deployed and managed. "Marimba's Timbale meets our need for fast and efficient application and Web server management," said Dave Durkee, chief information officer of NetLedger, Inc. "We were looking for a complete server management solution to replace our previous process of distributing applications and content. Timbale allows us to consolidate our internally developed and third-party applications under a single, automated solution umbrella. Now, we can make changes and updates to our applications more efficiently and, in turn, provide our customers with the latest enhancements faster, easier and more reliably." NetLedger provides accounting and business management applications for small businesses, which are entirely Web-based on Linux systems. In order to gain efficiency and reliability, NetLedger is replacing its previous method of updating and distributing their applications and content. Integrating Timbale into its release process will enable NetLedger to automate the process, reduce the number of people involved, and reduce the amount of time it has normally taken to perform updates. Durkee added, "With Timbale's capability to streamline the management of expanding server farms, we can be more efficient in making changes and updates to our applications and servers. As we move forward with Timbale, we expect to rollout our release process to an East Coast data centre." "By relying on Timbale, NetLedger's operational teams will have precise and powerful control over their application distribution and management," said Rich Wyckoff, senior vice president of worldwide marketing for Marimba. "We look forward to building an excellent relationship with NetLedger, and to reinforcing our commitment to helping our customers meet their server management goals."
