Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"eGrail Inc., an Open Source content management company,
released the kernel of its commercial software product to the Open
Source development community today. The eGrail Source software will
be available at www.egrail.org. This site will be managed under
eGrail's current organizational structure, but will focus solely on
providing technical services to Open Source developers."
"eGrail also announced its adoption of an innovative hybrid
business model that represents a new and improved approach for the
building, distribution and support of Internet software. eGrail is
committed to developing efficient Open Source software that can be
produced at a lower cost than most vendors currently in the market.
eGrail is the first and only enterprise-capable content management
software to run completely on Open Source infrastructure. eGrail's
innovative commercial software application has been used by the
company's customers for over two years."
"The release of our substantial and commercially-valuable
intellectual property to the world is a bold step," said eGrail's
Chief Executive Officer Ben Martindale. "But we believe that now is
the right time to establish a new business model, that will enable
us to reduce research and development costs, create a diversified
revenue stream that produces returns for our investors, and improve
the quality of products."
