"Centromine, Inc., the business-to-business leader in Internet behavioral healthcare software, today announced plans to upgrade to the Linux Operating System with Allaire's ColdFusion 4.5 release. The new version is designed as a cross-platform server to run on the Linux open-source operating system, which supports business-to-business enterprise applications."

"'As an ASP, the Linux environment is directly in line with our architectural vision," states Michael Bodner, Chief Information Officer for Centromine. "Allaire's proposed support for Linux with its ColdFusion version 4.5 allows us to migrate to a powerful platform, offering us the most comprehensive and opportune development environment. We decided to move forward with ColdFusion for Linux because it will offer our customers and us the highest performance, scalability and functionality.'"

"The new environment will increase efficiency of the ShareCare(TM) middle-tier server, increasing the overall efficiency for Centromine's web-based application. "We are now able to take advantage of leading edge technology," states Bodner. "Any architectural plan for an ASP should include moving in this direction to better support clients."

"Centromine's research and development group is currently testing ColdFusion with Linux for reliability, scalability and security."
