Author: JT Smith

Richmond, V.A., July 16, 2001 - bayMountain, a leading provider of complex Web and application infrastructure services, today announced that Caldera has chosen bayMountain to provision, and host the infrastructure for the online open source management service, Volution Online. www.volutiononline.com is the Caldera 24 x 7 on-line software management portion of the Caldera Volution systems and software management product offering.

To meet the needs of the site?s highly complex architecture, bayMountain designed a custom infrastructure configuration that employs an eight-server cluster ? including web application, database, and file servers. The cluster ensures redundancy and scalability on all levels. The cluster also allows the site to benefit from large file system support, load balancing and support for multiple software and technology platforms. In addition, Caldera is able to leverage bayMountain?s extensive experience in supporting Linux and Open Source deployments.

"Our goal with Volution is to help system administrators manage multiple Linux servers and workstations," said Reg Broughton, senior vice president at Caldera. "By leveraging bayMountain?s managed hosting services, we have added Volution Online to include a pro-active open source software/application management service and accelerated the delivery of a more complete solution."

?Caldera?s Volution and our managed hosting solutions actually support a common goal - to reduce costs, save time and increase the efficiency of customers, " said Dr. Mark Wensell, president and founder of bayMountain. "It makes sense for companies to benefit from both of these management resources."
