BOSTON, MA and PARIS--(Marketwire - Jul 11, 2011) - Nuxeo, the Open Source Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform company, today announces that Nuxeo Document Management is now available in the Ubuntu software partner catalog, ensuring ease of installation and deployment for developers building content management applications designed to run on the Ubuntu server environment. This new packaging and partnership with Canonical will ease installation, upgrades and the customization experience for the growing developer community selecting Ubuntu.
"With more businesses running content applications on Ubuntu, working more closely with Nuxeo ensures joint customers have the support and services they need to make open source a core part of their IT strategy," said Zaid Al Hamami, Director of Products & Engineering, Corporate Services at Canonical. "Clearly demand for the Ubuntu operating system continues to grow as software partners like Nuxeo and its vibrant developer community leverage it for new applications."
John Sims, systems architect at Jeppesen, a Nuxeo customer running Ubuntu, notes, "We wanted a content management system that was modular and flexible, based on industry standards, and priced right. Our operating system needed to fit the same requirements, and we're pleased to see this partnership evolve."
While Ubuntu has long been a supported operating system for Nuxeo Enterprise Platform and its packaged applications, including Nuxeo Document Management, the adoption of Ubuntu as the preferred Linux distribution continues to grow across the Nuxeo customer base, as well as becoming the operating system of choice for most of the Nuxeo R&D team. The Ubuntu distribution is ideal for massive cloud deployments, and is used by Nuxeo as a component of its cloud offering. Nuxeo will continue to support a wide range of open source and proprietary operating systems, including a bare Debian distribution.
"Having our Nuxeo EP distributions, including Nuxeo Document Management, optimized for Ubuntu is yet another step in our ongoing commitment to simplify the creation of cutting-edge content applications on the Nuxeo Enterprise Platform for architects, Java developers and system administrators," said Nuxeo CEO Eric Barroca. "Nuxeo is unique in the ECM market by executing on our strong commitment to streamline the end-to-end platform acquisition, installation and customization process to help application builders deliver content management solutions to their clients quickly and efficiently. Nuxeo Studio, Nuxeo Marketplace and the Nuxeo Connect portal also help developers expedite prototyping and design -- with just a few clicks and in a matter of minutes after download."
Nuxeo seeks active participation from the Debian and Ubuntu communities, who have deep expertise on how to package and run mission critical applications on a wide range of Linux servers and for a large population of users. Nuxeo encourages community contributions such as developing applications and add-ons for the Nuxeo platform.
