MARIMBA AND RESONATE PARTNER TO PROVIDE AN EFFICIENT METHOD FOR DISTRIBUTING SOFTWARE OVER THE INTERNET Wednesday 21 February 2001 PDF Print Marimba's Server Management Solution Distributes and Installs Resonate Software to UNIX and Windows NT Servers Marimba, Inc., a leading provider of Internet infrastructure management solutions, and Resonate Inc., a leading provider of Internet Services Management (iSM) solutions, today announced a partnership to enable customers to efficiently deploy applications over the Internet. Through this partnership, Marimba's Timbale for Server Management software and Resonate's Central Dispatch will provide a scalable software distribution and traffic management solution to service providers, Web hosters, and large enterprises with co-located server farms. Marimba and Resonate have also entered into joint marketing and sales activities. Marimba's Timbale for Server Management simplifies the deployment of software across widely distributed server farms in remote data centres or co-location centres. Precise, powerful control features let administrators easily establish how, when, and where software is distributed and activated. Resonate's Central Dispatch is a LAN-based traffic management product that provides consistent, reliable availability and performance by enabling multiple IP-based servers clustered on a LAN to act as a single, scalable and easily managed system. With software agents resident on every server, Resonate's Central Dispatch monitors a system's health and availability. The software solution then directs user requests to the server best able to optimise service levels. With a single, consolidated management view of enterprise server applications, Marimba's Timbale solution helps customers to rapidly integrate Resonate's software functionality into the enterprise infrastructure. This helps to ensure the delivery of consistent, high-quality services to the end-user. And, finally, administrators can quickly take advantage of Resonate's powerful and easily-scalable traffic management functionality to provide predictable service levels for end-users. "Streamlined software deployment with Timbale, and the traffic management functionality with Resonate Central Dispatch, will help service providers and large infrastructure enterprises to cost-effectively maintain highly responsive user services," said Steve McDermott, vice president of business development for Marimba. "This partnership is another example of how Timbale can be integrated into customers existing infrastructure." "Enterprises are increasingly adopting strategies to centralise server software distribution as they face the challenges of managing large, dispersed, and complex server environments," said Karen Styres, vice president of marketing for Resonate. "Through our partnership with Marimba, our customers who have large, geographically distributed server locations can efficiently and securely distribute and install Resonate software as part of their overall server management strategy with Marimba."
