rPath Says Its Linux Makes the OS Disappear
rPath Linux Tailored to Fit Software Appliances

rPath, a company recently launched by leading ex-RedHat engineers Erik Troan and Billy Marshall, has outlined a strategy in which developers can use the company's rBuilder to combine an application with a tailored version of rPath Linux.

The resulting software appliance can be delivered to customer, including an installer and maintenance mechanism that simplifies deployment and management to literally a few mouse clicks, the company says. Customers get the benefit of the application without the hassle of coordinating multiple maintenance streams, release schedules, and service contracts. From the perspective of the IT shop, rPath makes the operating system disappear

"Think of a software appliance as a hybrid of the on-demand application model and the network appliance model.," the company says. "The customer receives an integrated solution in the form of an installable CD or a virtual machine file that readily installs and runs on industry standard hardware. Maintenance for the entire solution is received from the application provider via a simple web user interface. Since maintenance comes from the application provider, it is pre-tested and certified in the exact environment the customer has deployed, so there are no more mis-matched maintenance streams from various vendors."
