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
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
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

NetLedger provides accounting and business management applications for
businesses, which are entirely Web-based on Linux systems. In order to
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
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,
expect to rollout our release process to an East Coast data centre."

"By relying on Timbale, NetLedger's operational teams will have precise
powerful control over their application distribution and management," said
Rich Wyckoff, senior vice president of worldwide marketing for Marimba.
look forward to building an excellent relationship with NetLedger, and to
reinforcing our commitment to helping our customers meet their server
management goals."
