CONNECTRIA DELIVERS HOSTED SERVICES BASED ON ORACLE SAAS FOR ISVs

lotusphere 2012ST. LOUIS, MO. (January 10, 2012) - Connectria Hosting, a global managed hosting company, today announced it will offer its independent software vendor (ISV) customers access to Oracle software on a monthly basis through Oracle's SaaS for ISVs model.

The model allows ISVs to use Oracle software on a monthly basis provided they are delivering an application in a one-to-many hosted commercial deployment. Since Connectria's hosting fees are based upon a fixed monthly cost, ISVs are now able to deploy and manage a hosted SaaS solution at an attractive price point with no upfront license investment.

As a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), Connectria has extensive experience hosting Oracle Database and Oracle Real Application Clusters, Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle Solaris, and Oracle Applications. Many ISV organizations are already enjoying the benefits of hosting their SaaS solutions in Connectria's 24/7 world‑class data centers.

The Oracle SaaS for ISVs model is appropriate both for ISVs transitioning to SaaS, as well as those seeking to strengthen their existing SaaS offerings. The model also enables ISVs to scale their software license investments as they grow and their needs change, while mitigating risk and providing flexibility for their customers.

The Oracle products available through the SaaS for ISVs model include Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server. Also available are Oracle Database options, including Oracle Real Application Clusters, Oracle Partitioning and Oracle Active Data Guard. The full list of available products can be found here on the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) portal. These products form a comprehensive, open and integrated set of technologies that allow ISVs to build, deploy and manage SaaS and cloud-based applications.

"Oracle's product offerings remove barriers for ISVs to enter and flourish in the SaaS market segment, delivering enterprise grade security, scalability and reliability to their customers," noted Rich Waidmann, Connectria President and CEO. "Oracle's SaaS for ISVs program makes it easier for Connectria to provide a hosted option at a relatively low cost. The ISV benefits from predictable, fixed monthly pricing and they're able to focus upon developing and marketing SaaS software, not running servers."
