Openbravo Takes SMBs To The Cloud with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

BARCELONA, Spain & CAMBRIDGE, Mass. Openbravo has announced that its flagship product, Openbravo ERP SMB Professional 2.50, is available as a native package for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server Edition, Canonical's latest cloud-capable version of its popular Linux-based Ubuntu operating system.

Openbravo is the leading developer of web-based open source Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), while Canonical is the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, which is rapidly becoming a very popular server platform choice for businesses of all sizes across the globe.

Openbravo ERP 2.50 Professional Subscription for Ubuntu now provides support for the Amazon Cloud through Canonical's Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Amazon Machine Images (AMIs), delivering its web-based ERP in a form factor that is convenient and easy for SMBs to deploy and maintain. By combining the cost and scalability benefits of public cloud computing with the proven security, stability, and flexibility of Ubuntu, Openbravo and Canonical are bringing enterprise computing into the mainstream.

Paolo Juvara, CTO of Openbravo, said: "Openbravo ERP helps SMBs to simplify and maximize their business, and deploying Openbravo SMB Professional on the cloud with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS is a great way to do both. Openbravo's partners and customers are pleased with our tight relationship with Canonical, and I see strategic synergies between the two companies going forward--cloud computing is a natural for our SMB customers, and Canonical is demonstrating clear leadership in this space."

Steve George, VP of Corporate Services, Canonical said: "Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server Edition is not only leading the standards-based cloud revolution with its support for Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, it is also a LTS (Long Term Support) release, which means that Canonical supports it for five full years. Mission-critical enterprise applications like Openbravo ERP need to be deployed on a robust, supported technology stack, and Canonical provides exactly that for Openbravo and its ERP customers."
