Sybase iAnywhere and Servoy Ramp Up Linux Development Effort

Adopt Linux to Run SQL Anywhere and Servoy App Server

Servoy andSybase's iAnywhere subsidiary announced at LinuxWorld Expo in Boston what they call "continuing momentum" for the adoption of Servoy Developer Solution with Linux-based applications. They listed several companies who have deployed the technology, including Automazione Aziendale, Excelisys, Shouri Communications, The Support Group,,and XpertMind.

The Servoy Developer Solution is a rapid application development suite powered by SQL Anywhere. "We're seeing continued demand for Linux-based solutions, as many of our developers are endorsing Linux as one of their key development and deployment platforms," said Michael Paola (pictured), director of product management at iAnywhere.

"iAnywhere and Servoy have been long-time supporters of the Linux platform. In the late 1990's, SQL Anywhere was one of the first relational databases with commercial support available for Linux, and Servoy created its Developer Solution to be compatible with Linux right from the start."

"Using Linux as a server platform to run SQL Anywhere and the Servoy Application Server makes a lot of sense. Not only is it less expensive in terms of server licenses but in our experience it is also more stable and reliable," said Jan Aleman, CEO, Servoy. "We also see more and more of our developers switching to Linux. In the past, server applications used to be difficult to manage but both SQL Anywhere and Servoy provide the same easy-to-use GUI as on other platforms to make it straightforward to manage Linux deployments and development environments."

Customers cited by the two companies, with brief comments from those companies' executives follows:
