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.
