VA Software Integrates SourceForge with IBM Products

VA Software Tuesday unveiled the first fruit of its new relationship with IBM : a new version of SourceForge Enterprise Edition 3.2 integrated with a range of IBM products.

The new version of SourceForge is now integrated with IBM DB2 Universal Database, WebSphere Studio Application Developer and Tivoli management software. VA Software has also optimized the development environment for IBM's eServer xSeries Linux servers.

"We announced our relationship with IBM in August; we've now delivered on integration with IBM software and hardware," said Ali Jenab, president and CEO of VA Software. "SourceForge is commercially available with support for IBM's software stack, and we are fully engaged with IBM's direct and indirect sales channels on joint sales activities."

VA Software said the IBM relationship has allowed it to make SourceForge deployment faster and easier for customers standardized on DB2, and that developers using WebSphere Studio Application Developer can access project data, code and content managed on SourceForge software directly through their integrated development environment (IDE). Meanwhile, Tivoli Enterprise Console users can use the Tivoli software to monitor performance of their SourceForge software and remotely administer it across the system.
