Progress Software Announces Sonic Deployment Manager

<p>Progress Software Extends Lead in Distributed SOA</p>
<p>Progress Sonic Deployment Manager enables widely distributed SOA deployments with centralised management</p>
<p>Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ: PRGS), a global supplier of application infrastructure software used to develop, deploy, integrate and manage business applications, today announced the general availability of the Progress Sonic Deployment Manager (SDM).</p>
<p>Progress Sonic products enable the integration and flexible re-use of business applications within a large, physically distributed service-oriented architecture (SOA). SDM extends the distributed capabilities of the Sonic products to help enterprises streamline incremental development and rollout of large-scale SOA deployments, while keeping costs low.</p>
<p>"The sizable Sonic products installed base provides plenty of real-world customer experience to guide product direction," said Brad Shimmin, Principal Analyst, Application Infrastructures, Current Analysis. "As organisations become more sophisticated in their SOA deployments, tools like the Sonic Deployment Manager are necessary to reduce the time and cost associated with managing those deployments."</p>
<p>A key benefit of SDM is its ability to allow enterprises to model all aspects of a Sonic product deployment, independent of physical deployment details, and to test production environments prior to roll-out. Additionally, by automating consistent and repeatable installations and configurations, SDM reduces the time to deploy at a remote site from days to minutes, even at remote sites with no IT staff. Components of both Progress Sonic ESB and Progress Sonic MQ (the enterprise messaging infrastructure that underpins Sonic ESB) are managed with SDM, including brokers, clusters, container and services.</p>
<p>Two of the key use cases for the Sonic Deployment Manager product are lifecycle management and large scale deployments. In both of these use cases SDM delivers on the critical need to have consistent, repeatable deployments both between lifecycle stages and also across a widely distributed environment. Unique to SDM is its ability to create a completely reproducible package of all components and configurations of a given deployment instance. This capability allows precise rollback and re-creation of any given environment, enabling configuration management, auditing and regulatory compliance.</p>
<p>"Many of our customers, and especially those that have a headquarters in one location but a physical presence in several locations, use SDM for what they call 'hands-off deployments’," said Jeremy Goddard, Country Manager, Australia and New Zealand of Progress Software. "SDM is critical for enterprises that succeeded at the SOA project level and are ready to move their SOA project enterprise wide."</p>
<p>The Progress Sonic Deployment Manager is available immediately and pricing starts at A$27,250.</p>
