Tokyo, Japan – (The Hosting News) – July 17, 2006 – Linux-based IT solutions company, Turbolinux, has engaged an Exclusive Reseller Partnership Program (ERPP) for its new, high performance Internet server configuration tool.
”Turbolinux Appliance Server 2.0 (TLAS2.0)” was designed to optimize Internet servers such as web, mail and DNS and enable users to easily configure and access the Internet. TLAS2.0 enables small and medium size enterprises that do not have system administrators to start web or mail services quickly. According to the company, one of the more notable features of TLAS2.0 is its uncomplicated “user interface,” which is based on the open source BlueQuartz, derived from the open source Sun Cobalt GUI released by Sun Microsystems.
Koichi Yano, President and CEO of Turbolinux explained, ”It has been three years since Sun discontinued Cobalt sales; however, nearly ten percent of world web sites still use Cobalt. As Cobalt’s only successor product, TLAS2.0 offers enhanced features for existing Cobalt users, and for a huge potential customer base of new users who require easy server configuration and web site management.”
Additionally, Turbolinux is offering an Exclusive Reseller Partnership Program in conjunction with the TLAS2.0 product release. The ERPP targets worldwide distributors (excluding Japan, China and India) — particularly vendors experienced with Cobalt — who have the capacity to market and provide support to their users. The annual sales commitment would be required. Regions include North America, South America, the European Union, Southeast Asia and Oceania.
To apply for ERPP, interested vendors should first send an e-mail to email@example.com to receive detailed information and an application. ERPP partners will be determined by August 31, 2006, and the partnership program will commence on October 1, 2006.
Turbolinux develops and sells the leading Linux distribution in Asia-Pacific. The operating system is optimized to run on a wide range of hardware platforms, including Intel-based servers and IBM mainframes. Turbolinux, with headquarters in Japan and offices worldwide, plays a major role in developing Linux systems for the Japanese market, including Japanese and Chinese language ”double-byte” text support. More than half of Turbolinux’s staff is dedicated to Linux engineering development and support, providing expert support and custom application development services that go beyond Japanese localization issues. Turbolinux works extensively with standards bodies and partners to ensure certification and software compatibility in all business environments.
