Progress Ships Linux Versions Of Software

Progress Software Corp. began shipping Linux versions of its database and application server products today. Because Progress' software is the foundation for some 5,000 commercial applications from independent software vendors, Linux versions of Progress' products are expected to fuel to Linux's already rapid growth.

Progress is shipping a Linux version of its Progress 8.3 suite, which includes the Progress AppServer application server and the Progress Enterprise RDBMS database. The software is certified for Red Hat 6.0 Linux, according to the company, with certification for other flavors of Linux likely in 2000. Progress AppServer is priced starting at $3,900 for a five-user license, while the Progress Enterprise RDBMS starts at $725 for a five-user license.

Although Progress began selling version 9 of its product suite earlier this year, more copies of the earlier 8.3 release are currently in use among independent software vendors and their customers, so a Linux version of that release was developed first, the company said. A Linux version of Progress 9 is expected in the first half of 2000, as is a Linux version of Progress' WebSpeed Internet development environment. Linux versions of Progress' Java-based Apptivity application server and SonicMQ Java messaging software are expected in the second half of 2000.
