FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Aestiva Announces NET-anywhere Initiative.
Aestiva announced a new initiative this week, called NET-anywhere,
dedicated to giving Web developers the ability to develop dynamic Web sites
once, on one kind of hardware, and deploy anywhere.
“Our use of the word ‘anywhere’ is not an accident,” states Aestiva
Director of Technology, D. M. Silverberg. “Companies should be building Web
applications that run on any hardware, anywhere.”
Aestiva is opposed to large software companies who design their Web
strategies around monopolistic legacy architectures. Such efforts result in
development and product costs that are so high only the richest
corporations can participate.
“Legacy strategies kill Web innovation,” says Silverberg. “Just as they
killed innovation in the pre-Web software industry.” “Aestiva isn’t
interested in protecting the out-of-date technologies of a few
corporations,” Silverberg adds. “We are proponents of Web technologies that
further the advancement of the Web for everyone.”
Alice Schneider, MIS director for the New York City Marathon, agrees with
this principle. “Our new web site uses software from Aestiva. It’s spread
across Sun servers running on both Intel and Sparc hardware. A run-anywhere
technology is a must. And as a non-profit company, affordability is
Aestiva’s NET-anywhere initiative opens the door to the development of
high-end web-based products priced for the small business market. Aestiva’s
development platform, HTML/OS, is built around a NET-anywhere architecture.
It features a built-in cross-platform Web database engine and support for
Web-based product packaging.
Products developed with HTML/OS run without modification on almost any kind
of server. Even in shared hosting accounts. Despite the hundreds of
possible hardware configurations, products take only minutes to install.
Aestiva’s NET-anywhere initiative focuses on three efforts now underway:
The first is the continued development of Aestiva HTML/OS on a NET-anywhere
architecture. Applications created on one platform can be deployed on any
other – like HTML documents.
Aestiva’s second effort involves proving the speed and power of
NET-anywhere architecture. Aestiva recently announced four new products on
its Web site, all built with HTML/OS. The products deliver enterprise
quality while being affordable for small businesses. The products are fine
examples of what Web developers can do with a NET-anywhere architecture.
The third effort at Aestiva is developing new tools to help independent
programmers build their own Web-based products. Aestiva actively works on
reducing the development time needed to learn, develop and deploy software
for the World-Wide-Web.
Aestiva’s NET-anywhere initiative fills an important gap in the Web
development world. Millions of businesses are seeking affordable,
commercially-supported Web-based applications. Now, with Aestiva’s
NET-anywhere architecture, developers can answer this need. To read
