Repliweb Selected by Wind River to Manage Global-wan Application and Content Releases

6 November 2008

RepliWeb, a leader in web content and application deployment automation, today announced that Wind River (NASDAQ: WIND) selected RepliWeb Deployment (R-1) to deploy enterprise applications, code updates and business information throughout Wind River’s global network of remote offices.

Wind River selected RepliWeb Deployment (R-1) for its highly efficient WAN engine that delivers block-level recovery and automatic-resume from the point where a connection failed. The WAN engine overcomes inherent issues such as packet loss latency and dropped lines, assuring the delivery of critical updates. R-1’s GUI interface provided a simple way to configure and launch deployment jobs to precise targets, offering an alternative to time-consuming, error-prone scripting. Immediate benefits were reliable deployments that did not require manual interventions or restarts, the ability to schedule and automate deployments of urgent data and business applications and a reduction of operations resources.

“Global enterprises like Wind River face significant challenges in keeping remote office business applications and content repositories in sync with corporate IT. RepliWeb Deployment provides a reliable, cost effective way to automate the distribution and collection of digital assets regardless of where end-point servers are located,” said Garrick Herrmann, Vice President at RepliWeb. “With R-1, IT organizations are able to accelerate information availability for remote users, and reduce management costs associated with deployment initiatives.”

Said Rupesh Patel, MTS Release Engineer at Wind River; “Prior to RepliWeb Deployment, we had one person nearly entirely devoted to managing the deployment processes. With R-1, we’ve reduced this to approximately 20 percent. R-1 has also accelerated release cycles and helped us achieve improved internal service levels.”
