For Immediate Release:
Aestiva’s Approach Attractive to Mac Users
Torrance, Calif. April 4, 2000. “Never count out the Apple,” says Aestiva’s
Director of Technology, D.M. Silverberg. Just as the iMac helped Apple
resurrect itself as a viable competitor to Microsoft in the marketplace,
MacOS X, its upcoming OS, promises a bright future for Apple. Apple’s
next-generation OS promises more power than many of its rivals.
Today most Web site hosting providers do not yet offer Mac server hosting.
That’s a big dilemma in the Mac world: Apple enthusiasts often have to
commit to non-Mac servers. By using Aestiva, however, they can go with a
non-Mac hosting provider and still use Mac for development.
Unlike products that anchor themselves in Microsoft or UNIX operating
systems, Aestiva’s Web approach gives an equal footing to Mac users.
Aestiva’s customer base includes a high percentage of Web designers who
prefer Mac over other platforms. As a Web-based product, designers can
develop with Aestiva using their Mac browser whether their site is hosted
on UNIX, Windows or MacOS X servers.
“If you’re an Apple enthusiast who would love for the whole world to be
Apple, we are one company that’s not standing in the way,” states
Silverberg. The approach used by Aestiva to attract Mac users works.
Aestiva has seen sales to Mac users increase 300% in the last six months.
Aestiva’s operating system is a powerful platform for developing high-end
dynamic Web sites and applications. While continually adding cutting-edge
technologies to its product, Aestiva is committed to ease-of-use – an
approach consistent with Apple’s own emphasis on ease-of-use. By
eliminating the need for Perl, CGI programming and database-integration
products, Aestiva gives designers a fast-track to advanced development. And
whether you’re on a Mac or any other platform, that’s going to be music to
