Aestiva Helps Small Businesses Get Big Time Web Results
Torrance, CA — Any business, no matter how small, can afford the same
types of technology that have allowed Amazon.com and Yahoo Shopping to
become major players in the world of e-commerce. Aestiva HTML/OS, Aestiva,
L.L.C.’s core product, allows anyone to design advanced Web sites without
CGI programming or the need for complex integration tools.
Amazon, Yahoo and other large companies have developed, in-house and at
great expense, Web-based operating platforms that allow them to build and
update dynamic, interactive sites. D. M. Silverberg, Director of Technology
for Aestiva, wants America’s millions of small businesses to know that they
can enjoy the same kind of online presence as the most famous e-business
success stories. And with Aestiva, they can do it without spending a lot of
time or money.
“Web-based platforms are not new,” Silverberg says, “but Aestiva makes that
same power available to the small business owner for under $800.”
Aestiva is a supplement to HTML. It allows designers with little or no
programming background to build advanced Websites by placing HTML/OS tags
in their HTML pages.
“Placing Aestiva on a Web site changes the site into a virtual computer so
you can add features to it, program it and make it do the things you want,”
Silverberg says, “Without Aestiva your programmers are stuck using CGI
which is archaic and expensive.”
A highly efficient scripting language, Aestiva can perform on-the-fly word
processing, create spreadsheets, run database and programming operations —
right on the Web. It’s as simple to use as HTML itself; eliminating the
need for CGI programming.
In today’s Web-marketplace, large corporations have sustained an advantage
over small business with less financial resources. Aestiva narrows the gap.
According to Silverberg “Once an organization starts using HTML/OS they see
barriers disappear. They start projects they had given up on. If you have
tried to create an advanced site and had to go through all that trouble you
can’t imagine what a relief it is to find something out there that
eliminates the complexities of building world-class Web sites.”
Aestiva HTML/OS is available for Sun, SGI-IRIX, BSDI, FreeBSD, Linux,
Cobalt RaQ, Windows, MacOS 7-9 and MacOS X platforms. Aestiva HTML/OS
retails for $799.00 (US). Upgrades are $150.00 (US).
