Intershop, Cobalt Offer Linux E-Commerce Appliance

Intershop Communications Inc., a provider of sell-side electronic commerce software, and server appliances developer Cobalt Networks Inc. are partnering to offer Intershop RaQ, the first Intershop e-commerce appliance on the Linux operating system.

Out of the box, Intershop RaQ will enable service providers to offer "a robust and aggressively priced solution for dedicated e-commerce hosting that eliminates complex configuration tasks and reduces server set-up time to a few minutes," the companies said.

Intershop RaQ consists of Cobalt's RaQ 3 server appliance and Intershop Merchant on Linux Red Hat 6.0.

"Intershop Merchant combined with Cobalt RaQ server appliances offers small to medium sized businesses the full benefits of a true plug and play e-commerce solution," said Mark Orr, Cobalt's vice president of business development and co-founder.

Intershop Merchant's four-tiered architecture, page caching, load balancing and professional back office management tools are designed for rapid deployment and scalability to meet current and future e-commerce needs of small-to medium sized businesses.

Cobalt RaQ comes pre-configured for the Linux operating system, Apache Web server, Sendmail and Front Page server extensions to provide the core Web publishing, e-mail and file transfer services upon which Service Providers and developers can build their solutions, the companies said.

Price points were not disclosed.
