rPath is widely recognized as a pioneer in solutions for reducing the cost and complexity of delivering enterprise applications to traditional, virtualized and cloud-based environments. Leading ISVs and enterprises rely on rBuilder and the rPath Lifecycle Management Platform for rapid deployment and low-overhead management and maintenance of complex application workloads. This dramatically improves business agility and allows resource-constrained IT organizations to "do more with less" by reducing the cost and complexity of application delivery. By producing application images and virtual appliances that can run most anywhere, rPath frees the application from the underlying hardware, simplifying deployment, portability and promoting scalability in response to dynamic demand.

Whitepaper: Rethinking Application Delivery In The Age Of Complexity

by rPathApr 16, 2009

Today's application delivery model must support today's complex IT reality. Developers have access to a wide array of languages, components, and frameworks. And IT operations staff can deploy applications into a variety of execution environments�including traditional, virtual, and cloud-based target environments�internally and externally, distributed around the world. Faced with such complexity, traditional application delivery breaks down. IT operations personnel are forced to manually configure and align each of the layers in a general-purpose stack to make an application run. This is a time-consuming and frustrating undertaking for IT, particularly when applications are complex. This challenge is only magnified by the constant state of change in deployment environments, which creates a never-ending cycle of conflict that causes applications to break and overhead costs to spiral.
