"Covalent Technologies, a leading supplier of commercial software for the Apache Web Server platform, announced the availability of several commercial support options for the Apache Web server. Apache, an open-source software that runs on Linux and other major operating systems, is the world's leading Web server for e-commerce solutions. The new service, called "Apache 1st(TM)Support," provides the only commercial support available for the Apache platform."

"Covalent Technologies CEO Randy Terbush, a co-founder of the Apache Software Foundation and one of the original developers of Apache, said that the software is used on approximately 4,000,000 servers in the United States. "Despite owning 65% of the worldwide Web server market," said Terbush, "Apache has had no commercial support until now." Terbush said that in the past many Web administrators who wanted to use Apache in corporate environments were unable to do so because there was no commercial support. "There will be more acceptance of Apache from upper management now that there is 'someone to call' if the system goes down," said the Covalent CEO."
