Free Registration Entitles Members to Technology, Worldwide Support and the
Professional Services Needed to Get to Market Faster
OREM, UT-May 14, 2001- Caldera International, Inc. (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.
