Sun Launches Solaris OD
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:JAVA), today announced Solaris (SM) On Demand, its software as a service (SaaS) program for the independent software vendor (ISV) community. This program provides ISVs with the technology, hosted infrastructure and services needed to offer their software as a service. It is especially targeted at ISVs with a traditional, on-premise license model who want to offer their existing application on-demand without having to use a multitenancy application architecture. To provide the hosting services, Sun is working with several partners such as NaviSite for U.S.-based and European Union companies, AT&T's USi Communications for U.S.-based companies and NTT Europe Online for European Union companies. With the Solaris On Demand program, ISVs can create offerings that meet the application availability, security, scalability and cost requirements of their own customers.

Our customers have come to expect a high level of integration, service and security that differentiates us from the competition, said Jeff Saling, senior vice president for Callidus On-Demand at Callidus Software. To that end, we needed an easy way to implement SaaS with unparalleled scalability and flexibility. We found that in Sun's Solaris On Demand program. Suns virtualization technology ensured secure management and scalability.
