rPath Named as Finalist for LinuxWorld Boston 2006 Product Excellence Awards
rPath's Flagship Product, rBuilder, Finalist in Two Categories, Best Virtualization Solution and Best Systems Management Tool

Quoting from Business Wire:

rPath today announced that its flagship product, rBuilder, the first platform for creating and maintaining Linux software appliances, has been selected as a finalist in two categories at the upcoming LinuxWorld Boston 2006 Product Excellence Awards, Best Virtualization Solution (rBuilder Online) and Best Systems Management Tool (rBuilder). These awards recognize product and service innovations by LinuxWorld exhibitors and will be presented during a ceremony in the Product Excellence Awards Theater on Wednesday, April 5, 2006 at 12:30 pm EST.

rBuilder is a platform for creating and maintaining software appliances. A software appliance combines an application with a tailored OS in a format that readily installs on industry standard hardware or runs as a virtual machine file, eliminating the hassles of software installation and configuration. rBuilder Online is free of charge for developers who make their software project available for download via rPath's online software appliance repository.

"We are pleased to have our software appliance concept recognized by the industry in this forum," said Erik Troan, rPath founder and CTO. "In the very near future, widespread availability of virtualization technology coupled with the freely distributable nature of Linux will make the software appliance the preferred format for distributing applications."

Troan will deliver an overview of rPath's rBuilder technology during a product demo at 12:00 pm on April 4th in the Product Excellence Theater. "I look forward to sharing with LinuxWorld attendees how simple it is to transform applications into software appliances using rBuilder Online," said Troan.

In addition, rPath will be exhibiting at LinuxWorld in booth #1101. For more information on the awards and LinuxWorld Conference & Expo, visit
