(Nasdaq: CALD), the only company "Unifying UNIX with Linux for Business," announced today the launch of the Caldera Developer Network. Caldera developers, including Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), Independent Hardware Vendors (IHVs), corporate in-house developers and members of the Open Source developer community, will have early access to UNIX and Linux technologies, allowing them to develop on UNIX, on Linux, or on a combined UNIX and Linux platform. This, plus the network's worldwide support and additional services, will enable members to build and develop their products with globally portable applications and get to market faster. "Members of the Caldera Developer Network have unique access to the resources, tools and support they need to build applications and drivers, and to certify on standards-compliant Caldera platforms," said Alan Milligan, Vice President of Engineering at Caldera. "They have the power to graduate their products through all stages of UNIX and Linux development and implementation, and then to take their products to market." "The current economical climate is screaming for a more direct technological solution to accelerate a product's journey to market," said John H. Terpstra, Vice President of Technology at Caldera. "Caldera provides just that to members of the Developer Network." "Borland is pleased to participate in Caldera International's Developer Program," said Ted Shelton, Chief Strategy Officer of Borland Software Corporation. "Together with Caldera's UNIX and Linux technologies, Borland offers corporations complete solutions for developing, deploying and managing world-class applications." The Developer Network merges the existing SCO and Caldera developer programs and encourages new membership by eliminating a registration fee. Membership benefits include utilizing Caldera's new on-line partner support services at no cost. More extensive, fee-based support services, including migration assistance, engineering and educational services, are available. In addition, members have access to the private developer lounge. In this password-protected area, developer partners can purchase products directly at discounts and receive free online technical support and other services. "The choice for Software AG is clear," said Alf Goebel, Vice President of Global Alliances for Software AG. "Caldera's Developer Network, which unifies UNIX and Linux development, will guide us through all our stages of product development and marketing." "As a SCO OpenServer developer who migrated to Caldera Linux and a leader in Linux business software, VENTAS AG recommends Caldera's blend of UNIX and Linux and their clustering to our customers," said Christina Pradel, member of the board and sales representative of VENTAS AG.
